The video shows how to transform a Walthers Blast Furnace kit into a museum-quality model by adding myriad details that don’t come with the kit. These include piping, burners, three kinds of gas valves (goggle, hot blast & gate-types), skip hoist details, steps/handrails/walkways and a sloped casthouse floor. Techniques are demonstrated on how to work with Plastruct parts, Evergreen shapes and sheet plastic that can also be used in creating other kinds of models. The presenter is Jeff Borne.
The 86-minute DVD video has an accompanying self-starting CD-ROM, that is like looking through a book on a computer (PC & Mac), with 252 photos of the construction/model work and a parts list.
