CGI was invented in the 1820s in Britain by Henry Robinson Palmer, architect and engineer to the London Dock Company. It was originally made (as the name suggests) from wrought iron. It proved to be light, strong, corrosion-resistant, and easily transported, and particularly lent itself to prefabricated structures and improvisation by semi-skilled workers.
Wrought iron CGI was gradually replaced by mild steel from around the 1890s, where it was used extensively to produce huts similar to this one.
This building features a doorway, with a rear-end window.
This model is made from weather-resistant plastic (not resin) and can be used for indoor or outdoor railways. To make the most of your Brunel Model, please follow the safety guidelines and instructions carefully.
