Thought I'd better do a little work on the Club Module / Mini . The modules total 16sq.ft. ( 8x2 ) and will feature a sintering plant . Since I'm using a false front design , it will get the idea across in only about 1/3 the space . The plant is scratchbuilt completely from styrene and I just took it to the club for a trial fit . Everything looks in place so far . There is much ductwork to be added to the trestle as well as a large chimney and many other details . The dormer is taped in place for a test fit .







The styrene ' brick sheet ' needs a lot of attention as does the backdrop ...all in due course !

Very nice, Terry!

That's a very impressive looking structure!

Terry,

I guess I'll expose my ignorance once again - what's a sintering plant? It looks like a pretty big structure. What size is it? It'll be interesting to see how it turns out.

George and All ,

Sintering is a process that takes a useful substance that is in an unusable form , mixes it with another product and produces a usable form of the original product .
For instance , if you had something in powdered form , you might get the maximum benefit out of that powder by mixing it with something with more mass . The ' powder ' becomes a usable 'clump' for another process .
Is everyone still awake ?
Boring stuff , I guess , but the process is used in steel production among other things .
The plant is about 2 feet long , 6" deep and a foot high , and is HO scale .

Well it's coming along ( but then so is Christmas ) ..I took the plant into the Modular Club to test fit on the module . I reduced the size of the trestle a bit for a better fit , added the duct work , downcomer ( curved piping ) , blower ( white square item ) and the duct that is on an angle that will be connected to a tall round chimney .
Things are lining up OK at this point . There will be chutes under the ductwork to drop the sintered product into waiting gons underneath the trestle ....lots of details and weathering to add .

Terry








The curved pieces of styrene on the ducting ( grey ) was formed from flat styrene curved and glued using ACC .
