    Blast furnace with torpedo wagon and slag cart

    Tristram, nothing wrong with constructive critisism :) I get your point. I will see what I can come up with . Sofar, however, the project is not gaining votes as fast as I had hoped. Ever since the new set up of Ideas, I have been very hesitant to post anything. Visibility is horrible with all the stuff being posted in one giant mix. Still, I have not given up hope just yet :)

    Blast furnace with torpedo wagon and slag cart

    Tristram, I am not entirely sure about what you mean with "slice of life". I agree with you that the yellow looks a bit off. I put it in because, in general, LEGO likes bright and cheerful sets. The one I am building irl however is quite dark, grey and brown :) I will post it when ready and on the update page as well of Ideas. Adding more "crap" would make it look more rugged and used, I agree, but as I am on the limit of 3 k already, it will mean deleting a part of the process. I am a bit hesitant to do that simply because I would not know which part to delete. What I could do is remove the bricks between the tracks, or delete the torpedo maybe? That would free about 400 bricks to be able to change it to a more messy state. Maybe you will like the updated version better :) Andythenorth, those drawings look cool, some would be interesting to build with Lego as well!

    Blast furnace with torpedo wagon and slag cart

    Chromeknight, I often use the renders because my pictures tend to turn out rather bad. I am working on the small furnace as we speak. I cannot really say how much it would cost, because I have a fairly large supply so I had to order only a few bricks. It is 3000 bricks, with several large elements and a few baseplates, I guess it would be close to 400 euro?

    No professional knowledge whatsoever. I do try to understand the production process before building, because I want to make it as realistic as possible. I just look at pictures and then start building. @DeanLearner

    Minifigures need jobs, so I created some industrial objects over the past year. In the picture you can see several factories / plants. From left to right: sawtooth shed, concrete mix plant, dolomite processing, old mining site, big red warehouse/factory and a chemical plant. The second picture is the latest addition to the zone: blast furnace. Designed in LDD first and built afterwards, well almost. Still working on the blast furnace and the dolomite plant. Hope you like it :) P industrial zone all 6 by Yvonne Strijbos, on Flickr P furnace main schuin van boven by Yvonne Strijbos, on Flickr

    Thank you deraven, that link helped :)
  7. Not just trains, but train related. I built a big blast furnace with 13k bricks a while ago. It took several weeks to build it all in LDD. I tested the stability of the pipes i.r.l. with random bricks to be sure. When I posted those pictures, quite a few people asked for instructions so I decided to make a small blast furnace instead and enter it at Lego Ideas. It comes with all the main process features except the storage bunkers and crane.

    Loading station for chemicals and chemical plant

    @ mrseven I looked at many pictures before building. Since the limit is only 3000 bricks it can only be a small model of some parts. The higher the brick count, the less chance of getting through I think. Still, who knows what industrial sets might spawn from it :) First goal is to get to 10.000 votes :)

    Loading station for chemicals and chemical plant

    Thank you all. Glad you like it and really appreciate the votes :D
  11. No Lego without plastic and plastics are created by the chemistry industry. The model has several processing machinery and a laboratory. The products can be loaded to either rail and road vehicles with the loading station. Should you like the model, please consider voting for it Lego Ideas. The goal is 10.000 votes and voting is free: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/95fff097-fcaf-4aa4-a8e8-6efebce91ed1

    Good evening

    Thank you for accepting me in your forum. I am Ymarilego from Holland. Mother of 2 sons, one of which likes lego, the other prefers gaming. A little over a year ago I started making MOCs after building premade sets for many years. My main interest is Star Wars, but I also like medieval themes, architecture, sci-fi sets. Main hobbies are reading, movies, gaming and lego. What I would like to learn is how to make a nice video of lego builds that are made with LDD or similar.
