To start with the lighthouse I initially thought of building an octagonal lighthouse tower like the Montauk. But when I looked at the lighthouses in North Carolina, the place where the layout is based on, I found that all the notable lighthouses there have conical tower and not pyramidal. So, it was time for me to build the cone. Drawing the cone was a refresher to my engineering drawing classes, only difference was, I did not have any of my drawing equipments because I have no idea where they are! So had to do it with just a scale and a compass.
Now some shots:
