Coast Guard Lookout Post

3 comments
To complement the Coast Guard Dune Buggy I've created the Lookout post. Quite a simple design, incorporated the orange blue and white colour scheme to keep consistent with the theme.

The stairs lead up to the hatch in the office with is fitted out with a few "Coast Guard Essentials", I would of liked to include would be a green suitcase with a white cross on it for a first aid kit.

The roof lifts off to give access to the office, I was pleased with rake of the roof being quite shallow, I could of hinged it but felt if would be easier for children to play with the roof was out of the way altogether.

There a couple of things I like about the model that I though worked well, the life belts on the front pillars look cool, and the 3 colours on the corner posts which was more of an accidental thing, I had ran out of the white 1x1 round elements which lead me to being a bit more creative!

I would envisage the set to be around the £15-£20 mark and part of the City range.
