Ethanol Plant

This is my recently finished ethanol plant. The table measures 8' X 3' 6" and has an insulation board placed on top. I spray painted large evergreen sheets with Rust-Oleum Desert Bisque for texture and applied them to the board. All buildings are from Walthers Cornerstone North American Ethanol Plant Series. A combination of Walthers and Plastruct parts are used for the ethanol and water piping. The sky was painted by an artist.

Thanks for the compliments! Because I don't have room for a large running layout, I went the diorama route. This way, there was enough room for the plant and service tracks.

The last structure I added is the plant's office building. It's from the Pikestuff Kitbasher Series. Pikestuff is the only company I know of that produces a kit for a modern office building. The only thing left to do with the structure is to fill a few open spaces at the bottom and attached an Evergreen sheet under it.
