Mini Planter Series: Coit Tower

Find it on Thingiverse Tinker this...

Instantly get transported to one of the most picturesque cities in the world, San Francisco, with this replica of the infamous Coit Tower. Designed and built to resemble a fire hose, it was donated to the residents of San Francisco by Lillie Hitchcock Coit, a wealthy socialite who loved to chase fires in the early days of the city's history, when firehouses did not yet exist.

Tower was designed by Arthur Brown, Jr and completed on October 8, 1933, just a few years after Lillie's death. I think she would be happy to see such a monument raised in her honor!

Do read the wiki, it contains a lot of interesting info on the tower: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coit_Tower

Seen here is a model in HO, or 1:87 (ish) scale. This is a beta model, lots could be improved/redesigned.

Enjoy!
