    Overall Views of the plant. The conveyors at this point in the pictures still have not been sprayed the aluminum color they will be but they are as of now.

    Only one more step to go, Just have to build the Quencher Tower now and the Coke Oven will be a sucessful kitbuild. And then there is weathering to after that :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    You know..... I don't think I've ever taken as long on an entire layout as you have for this one giant industry. :D

    Looking good though.
    Should be killer when you're done :thumb:

    Okay, been working on the Rolling Mills again and so I havn't really made any progress on the Coke Oven for a while cause I need to get the Kitbashed Rolling Mills done and weathered in time for the contest it is being entered in.

    But I finished the Coke Oven, YES FINISHED, including weathering too. The weathered pics will be posted today and if not today by the weekend :thumb: :mrgreen:
