    Glued the other Furnace Room Roof sheet on.

    The Furnace and Cast House part of the Blast Furnace Building are now complete (exept for attaching the pipe at the top of the furnace and the conveyor that goes to the top of the furnace. That is later.)

    Here are some pics of the Furnace and Cast Room. Keep in mind that this whole building will get a coat of black wash and rust stains all over the roofs, tanks and pipes. This is WAY TO SHINNY for a blast furnace and is just the "undercoat"!! LOL

    Thanks, I might consider putting them in later, it isn't to hard to get to the inside from the bottom of the building.

    I decided that I should do the first step in weathering the building while I could still reach it easyly. This is the black wash step, I will use chalks and create rust marks on the sheeting. The whole building will get a coat of the black wash.

    Glued the yellow Railings in place on the upper Elevator Platform. I have to touch up the side of the Elavator. This part of the Blast Furnace is now complete. Next will be the conveyor to the top of the Furnace and the Bridge for the hopper cars to drive over.
