    Default Scratch built chemical plant

    While waiting for my brick and claboard styrene sheets to arive I used
    the styrene I had left to build this chemical plant.

    Nice work, Brian!
    Dick,

    Nice job on the building, and the tank too. My only suggestion would be a couple more smaller tanks and some plumbing connecting them to the building, maybe a run out to a trackside tanker unloading port. Doesn't have to be a whole facility with the walkways and such, just a fixture with a hose, really.

    That looks nice. I'm also putting in a chemical plant and need some tanks like yours. How did you build your tank? Especially like the round top.

    That tank looks an awful lot like a test tube! I got some really neat items out of the grabage when the Missus was in. Man! She used to get so ornery at me for sticking my hand into the sharps containers and digging out stuff but man, I got some things that could be bashed into some seriously interesting industrial type things. Scored a nice haemostat too!

    Some day I will post a picture of what I have and maybe some of you guys can use some of it.

    Gotta love buildings just made out of leftovers, dontcha. I pretty much save all the scraps from my projects, never know when it'll come in handy. And I won't say what I think the tank looks like...but let's just say I doubt musicman's Missus would have thrown it away!
