The Kenosha North Pier lighthouse is located in Kenosha, Wisconsin. It's a typical "Lake Michigan red tower", a sibling to the Milwaukee Pierhead Light. This light was built in 1906 as a replacement for the "Old Kenosha Light".

I built this for the KLUG (Kenosha LEGO Users Group) trolley layout. It is built at 1 stud:1 foot scale, roughly minfigure scale. It is made up of 11 circular sections of decreasing size, with a difference of only 1/2 plate in diameter between each neighboring section.

I had a lot of fun building this one... see if you can guess how the sections are attached! Every red section is physically connected to each neighboring red section - only the base and balcony are "gravity" connected.

Funky looking lighthouse...I like it. :laugh: I'm not familiar with it, but the scene looks great. Judging from the other comments, I'd say you captured the desired effect right.

From another Wisconsinite - great work!  I grew up in Sheboygan, and the Sheboygan lighthouse and Kenosha lighthouse were built at roughly the same time and to the same design.  I can say you've definitely captured the look of these Great Lakes lighthouse quite well.
