George , I'm assuming you mean the curved downcomer . It is a Plastruct item with rings attached ( slid on and glued ) so that it appears to be segments . It is weathered with the old paint/water/paint method that I like . The flared end is a Plastruct cone that has been altered .

Terry, I really like your progress and was hoping you could tell me where have I seen the pipe finish before I think it was one of yours as well, a factory of some sort wasn't it. The material you use to make the structures has lines drawn on it or do you add them, this could be really helpful to keep things square, what thickness do you buy it in and is bought somewhere thats available in the States? Your creative process is really great are you working from a pic or just winging it? Thanks so much Pat.

Pat , I guess you could describe this as a 'scratchbuilders kit ' , if there is such a thing .



This is developed by Dean Freytag in conjunction with Plastruct . You get a box full of Plastruct product with some instructions by Dean . With all due respect to Dean , they aren't very well written IMO . The beauty of it is , you can take all the various pieces of styrene and build whatever you want . I'm sticking to the basic plan with my sintering plant but with the steel mill building , I did my own thing . ( that is the first picture on the left of the box )

I haven't seen the sintering plant for sale anywhere yet . I phoned Dean and he had Plastruct send it to Karl O's , where I picked it up .

I scribed the lines in the styrene walls , using a Mastercraft knife after clamping the styrene to the workbench as it is very slippery .

Terry, the sintering plant looks great. I didn't know about that Plastruct kit. Is is made of styrene or ABS plastic? (Can you use styrene cement is my real question.)
