Description

Section of the coastline of Brittany, the west coast of Northern France, had always been known by sailors to be a rugged and dangerous area. Being the westernmost point of land, it is a heavily trafficked sealane, and also experiences severe weather during much of the year. 22 tons of soap and tallow were spread on the slipway to lubricate the ship’s passage into the River Lagan.

Inspiration of a jument lighthouse
Use a interior lamp

PROTOTYPE HISTORY

La Jument lighthouse is located in Bretonne. It is built on a fragment of a rock and in bad weather is completely cut off from the world. Dramatic shots of storms on La Jument were often published in glossy magazines and online publications, which brought the lighthouse a worldwide fame. The lighthouse warns ships of the danger of approaching the shore, as the underwater rocks have led to dozens shipwrecks at this location.

Since 1991, the lighthouse has been fully automated and controlled remotely. Lighthouses, as symbols of guiding light, amulets from dangers, have always been a source of inspiration for creative people. The Lighthouse was the last tale of one of the most mysterious writers in the history of Edgar Poe, which he never finished.

Movie studio “Castle Rock”, which created the best film adaptations of another master of mystery and horror Stephen King, has a lighthouse on its logo. Since the beginning of the history of navigation, lighthouses have been landmarks for sailors. Initially, they were large bonfires, and now they are electric lamps with a complex system of lenses and mirrors.

PROTOTYPE HISTORY
HISTORY OF THE MODEL FORMATION

Creating the Sailor’s Companion, the Metal Time team was inspired by photos of the La Jument lighthouse in a storm. However, not only world fame, but also the architecture of the building also deserves attention. The 100-meter-high tower with a superstructure typical of European architecture looks very harmonious and beautiful.

And to recreate it in metal will be a challenging but exciting task for you. A multitude of parts and components at your fingertips will be combined into a wonderful exhibit of the Metal Time collection of models.

FEATURES, BENEFITS

Its movement is provided by an electric motor powered by a battery pack. Thanks to this, the model of the lighthouse can be used as a night light, an object of installation or part of a composition in combination with ship models “Metal time”. T

he assembly process will pose a lot of challenges for you, but a few hours spent on technical creativity will be rewarded with an excellent result. The majestic tower of the lighthouse will take its rightful place in your interior – at the stand of the models collection, on the desktop in the cabinet or in the nursery.

Precise cutting of the set eliminates the possibility of cuts during the assembling process. The parts fit accurately together and will not create problems with connecting. Pleasant tactile sensations, durability and aesthetics of matte metal distinguish the steel parts from wooden or plastic ones used in other constructors.

Convenient flat packaging made from sustainable recyclable cardboard combines compactness and the aesthetics of a status gift. Each buyer of the “Metal time” model receives a club badge, a thank you card and a unique number assigned to each model. Joining the Metal Time club opens up additional opportunities for each customer.

WHAT IS IN THE GIFTBOX?

Besides, every customer gets a club badge “Metal Time” and the club’s registration card, which creates opportunities for the “Metal Time” constructor owners activities.
