Build Your Own Tiny Fastnet Film Centre, Schull



Designed and painted by Anke Eckardt in her West Cork studio, this kit is an unusual, creative gift.

All you need is scissors and glue to make this great model inspired by the old bank building in the picturesque West Cork fishing village of Schull. It was built around 1935 using the well crafted Cornish stones, which came from the dismantled Church of Ireland church on Cape Clear. The solid stonework created the sense of permanence and security which banks hoped to inspire....

In 2012, AIB closed its branch in Schull, leaving the building ready for a new purpose...

In 2016, Judith and William Bollinger purchased the building to provide a home for the Fastnet Film Festival, which takes place every year in Schull. Short films from all over the world are screened, and industry professionals are invited to share their knowledge.

Clear, easy to follow instructions included.


Each kit is printed on 220gsm card, ready to cut out and assemble. The whole kit is packed in an attractive recycled cardboard wallet. 

Average size of each model: approx 14cm high x 13cm x 9cm.

Scale: 1:76
