Crossdale Cement #1

Starting the preheater tower

A new year deserves a new project, right? I know that I should finish one project before I start another but, frankly, I get bored. Anyway, this is still in keeping with the ‘start from the back and work forward’ ethic.

This model will be a crucial part of ‘Crossdale Cement’ and will feature an animated rotary kiln.

The first stage is to create the preheater tower, and this has started life with some sections of Plastruct girder. The drawing I’m working to is one I’ve created in SketchUp and is based on an existing tower, but scaled down to suit the layout.

Anything scaled down from actual full size dimensions would just dwarf the layout.
