I am still working on the instructions for the first half of this kit. I took a break and completed the second half and took a bunch of pictures so you all could see what it will look like when all together. Enjoy!

The structures look incredible, but the smoke stack looks a bit strange.

The prototype is in the UP of Michigan.  There is lots of strange stuff up there.  Looks pretty prototypical to me.

I am going to hate myself for asking, but what do find strange about it?

I live in New England where there are many of old mills and smoke stacks, but they are made of bricks.  That's what I'm used to seeing.  This stacks has unusual color, mottled surface, and it seems to be made from something other than brick (large stone blocks?).  That is why I said that it looked strange.  It doesn't mean bad or wrong - just strange to me.

That makes sense (and something I have never seen before).

Indeed it is cast concrete...



On the left fresh out of the laser (birch wood dowel turned on a lathe)...On the right after I painted and "mottled" it  :P



I thought Peteski was saying it looked strange because it was wood and not acrylic  ;)

LOL no, I'm over that.  :D
It just like I said - I'm used to seeing brick smoke stacks.  Your model (color and details) replicates the real stack very well.

Hey, after looking at that video I have a feeling that the group involved in preservation of that smelter wold probably love to have a miniature model of the main structures.

That's not a smokestack, it's a minaret!
