1870`s Cape Hatteras Lighthouse Paper Model In 1/500 Scale
by Wurlington Bros

The tallest lighthouse in the United States was built in 1870 to warn ships of the dangerous Diamond Shoals off Cape Hatteras where the warm Gulf Stream meets the cold Labrador Current, producing storms and turbulent waters. Westward erosion of the sandy Outer Banks threatened to undermine the foundation of the brick lighthouse before it was moved several thousand feet inland in 1999. - Wurlington Bros - This paper model occupies only one sheet of paper and is in 1/500 scale.

The Real Thing

O farol mais alto nos Estados Unidos foi construído em 1870 para alertar os navios que passam por Diamond Shoals, no Cabo Hatteras, durante as tempestades que produzem águas turbulentas. A erosão das areias de Outer Banks ameaçava minar a fundação do farol de tijolos, então ele foi movido algumas centenas de metros em 1999. - Wurlington Bros - Este modelo de papel ocupa apenas uma folha de papel e está na escala 1/500.
