    Styrene, cardboard, or brass can all be used in place of wood. Can you give us a link to the coal buring plant thread?

    Sorry for the generic reply before. Now I see what you are after...

    Robin's mdf ("wood") condensing towers for his cola burning power station... You might be able to do something similar using disks of cardboard covered with papier maché, sculptamold, or lightweight joint compound.

    I think Robin used cardboard for the condensing towers and sprue for the piping.
