grosse point lightGrosse Point Light Postcard--Build Your Own Chicago

From 1873 to 1941, this lighthouse guided ships past the dangerous shoals off Grosse Point in Evanston to the busiest port on the Great Lakes at Chicago Harbor. At 113 feet, it is one of the tallest lighthouses on Lake Michigan. This card includes all pieces and instructions necessary to make a complete paper model at 1:400 scale, approx. 3.25" tall. All the cards in the Build Your Own Chicago series are mailable postcards, with space on the reverse for a stamp and address and a message. Each card also includes a short but informative description of the landmark the model represents. Instructions are included in the form of multi-lingual isometric diagrams. There is also a Build Your Own New York series.
