    Hello all,


    Folks I have been working and building my steel mill. As of recently,I've completed the BOF bag house,flare tower,conected the down-comer and added more detail including more lights.

    Right now the slag pit is taking shape. It is being built from 4" extruded foam board.With a main crusher up high ,so the haul trucks can dump there load.

    Going to have to scrap the forge shop, to big and I need the space.

    Loren,


    Right now as it stands ,about seven feet wide, four feet long by three feet high . I still have more to build. Keep in mind this structure is compressed,it should be much larger.

    Nice work, Patrick, you're really capturing the "feel" of a steel plant. :thumb::thumb: Nice work too on your selective compression: when the prototype is so large, it's sometimes difficult to retain that "massiveness" so necessary to keeping the scene believeable.
