Horse Island Lighthouse

This light stood on Horse Island just off shore from Sackett's Harbour, New York. It was a project which I enjoyed working on as it was more than just a simple build, what with incorperating the light with thought given to the ability to replace both worn out bulbs and also batteries without this tarnishing the look of the finished product.

Here are a couple pics of the model under construction and some more of the finished product with light on and off.


  1. It looks fantastic. Do you have info on when it was built? What gaming plans do you have for the model?

  2. I have a hunch that it dates to mid 19th century although it does appear in Lossing's Field Book of the War of 1812.

    As far as gaming goes, it does feature in some 1812 games but thats about it really. It was just something I saw and had a need to build.

  3. Wow, that's gorgeous. I look forward to seeing more.
