    Looks great Jim! I found part of the lighter under the column below the middle battery, right?

    :wave: WooHoo & Hehehe, thanks alot guys. Some answers, Charlie it is funny :D you should ask, I used YOUR technique, it is real dirt piled up to some what meet the crossing, as it dried it cracked, I liked the look and left it. I them sanded it per the Chaz Act and put another coat of Elmers thinned to hold all in place.
    Siderod: Russ is right, the lighter part is under the center tank holding the column in place, there is also a lighter part on the roof acting as a vent. An hey it the batteries go caboom, then we will have a melt down accident. :rolleyes: Thanks again, Jim

    That's a great little plant, Jim!

    I also like that weathered look - dirty, dusty as it's ok for a concrete plant, but just the same it doesn't look like a completely run-down industry. You got just the right amount of dirt and rust in the right places. :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    :wave: Hey Tim, that one is no longer in production, if I ever get my butt in gear I could cast a couple and sent you one. I know there's that IF word! Later, lazy Jim :sleeping:

    I'm amazed by the talent of some people. I never would've guessed that some everyday items were used when building this thing. Since they were mentioned beforehand, it's neat to see how they're used.

    Very nice job!
