This kit makes an unusual, quirky gift. It contains 5 models to cut out and make yourself. Each one is inspired by an actual building in Cork City , Ireland. The gables and rears of the buildings are adorned with observations of the town itself, allowing the person assembling the kit to discover beautiful details.
Size of each model: approx 13cm x 6cm x 10cm Scale: 1:76 ( ideal for 00 guage model railways)
Original ink and watercolour drawings printed on high quality 220gsm card
For me, Cork city is a place full of memories of my years there as a student. It has a special atmosphere - modern life trying to take over, but the old Cork always shining through. In my kit I have included the English Market as a centre piece, a South Mall Office with its steps up to the main door, the HiB, a beautiful old Hardware shop on North Street and a tiny derelict shop on the North side: Inchigeela Dairy.
Lovely!!! I have many memories in cork.
So, I can remember seeing it. I’m happy. Thank you!

Beautiful!! I bought this as a gift for my friend who studied abroad in Cork last spring. She gave me the biggest hug when she saw it. She almost cried! A really meaningful, beautiful gift. And fast shipping! Thank you!!
