    [​IMG]Hello all,


    My wife is helping me finish the steel mill layout before my heath gets worse. Here is a few photos of the BOF after adding more detail to the structure.The kress carriers are completely scratch built, the other vehicles are store bought.

    As a former steelworker, I must congratulate you on your success in capturing the massiveness of such a facility. :thumb::thumb: Your scratchbuilding skills are very impressive, and, as much as I dislike Kress carriers (they spelled the end of our extensive intra-plant railway), you've done a fine job in replicating their appearance. Excellent work, Patrick.

    Is it OK if I can use some of your ideas when I start my mill ?:oops:
    Your structures and carriers look like you took them right out of the Cornerstone Box.Your model is GREAT.
