As N025 but this kit INCLUDES the 3D printed parts from Ngineer.
Nordin’s concrete plant is a busy operation with sand, shingle and cement being weighed and delivered by truck to the hoppers where they are lifted by conveyor to the holding silos on the roof of the mix and dispatch building. Meanwhile there is a constant stream of trucks loading and taking the concrete off around town to the numerous construction sites.
This exciting kit features many 3D printed and laser cut parts to bring the best of both technologies together in one assembly. The 3D printed parts include:
Please note that the ground-standing silo is not included in the kit but can he purchased here
The Laser cut parts include
The ramp and weighbridge – the sides of the ramp are cut patterned to represent Terre Armee.
The hold and mix plant – Laser cut Slaters corrugated plastikard is used as the skin of the building, simply CA glue the skin to the MDF girder frame and use a styrene adhesive to fasten the plastikard pieces together. Laser cut manilla card is used for window frames, door ways and grills to complete.
The Conveyor could be refashioned to unload from a covered hopper car without much difficulty – run the track over a hole in the baseboard and have the conveyor descend into the hole to lift the cement/sand/shingle from the car. Using two conveyors – one on each side of the building, or the railroad conveyor dropping onto the hopper belt would allow both road and rail operations.
The kit includes an excellent water-slide decal sheet by John Lewis
