Hi Webbo - hope you are well?

I always forget that the layout info is buried 'online' from the American railroad threads, but Ive found you again.  Nice job on the motel.  meantime, Ive been driving up and down the M9 a bit recently and thinking of you. (ah..)

Only as I was wondering how you had got along with finding an excuse to include your refinery kit, or indeed if you had just given up?  Reason i ask is this image here:

https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@56.0768307,-3.8758931,3a,75y,105.59h,76.12t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sy08b73uqbTL_XM0QzrAaMg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en



this is actually a precast concrete yard (Plean Precast, Stirling), but it looms our from the countryside just like a small refinery kit seems to.  I'll try and find an image looking from the M9 as thats where you get the greatest contrast between green fields and sudden smoking plant!

edit: oh look, here is a google image from the motorway, that completely fails to capture the apparent largeness and sudden unexpectedness of the plant as you drive along:

Thanks Donald

You have provided me with encouragement. Things like refineries are best out of town and mine will be (maybe) on the edge of town. After all, who wants a smelly, smoky industrial complex in town? Having asked this, I quite like the things so it wouldn't bother me.

I haven't made any decisions on whether the refinery is to be or not to be. I'm sort of hoping that this decision will be delivered from above or in my dreams (as with Dats and his Foamcore). Basically this is procrastination borne of cowardice about making a decision.

The second image has you say Donald doesn’t give a great perspective of the refinery, but the one from the railway line is great, maybe Webbo could do his by a line just outside of town.  :beers:

I sat go for it.  You've done a lot of work and just outside town would be ideal.
With kind regards

Go for it Webbo, you know deep down that you want a refinery. :D

Great work with the walther kit, excellent painting. Thanks for the tip regarding the painting, not the 38 deg bit, but the lack of adhesion of acrylics. I have detailed mine with enamel paint and need to add some weathering. I was thinking of doing this directly with acrylics, re-plan required me thinks.
