Hallelujah Paper: Production has started

Hallelujah Paper at Silicon Valley Lines is up and running. The paper machine is producing paper board and card board. I have not figured out how to model the proper olfactory experience yet, so I settled for the steam effect. A few more walkways were kitbashed and painted, as well as more pipes laid and connected.

I'm trying something different with the plant roads. The templates I made last week were used to lay out and cut road pieces from from 0.125" styrene, and sprayed with medium gray primer, and light gray texture paint.

The texture effect is a tad too strong, I might go back later and soften the texture with a wash or weathering. For now the road pieces are laid out throughout the plant. I'll let this simmer for a while. Let's see how I like this in a month or so and what the SVL membership has to say. I fitted one piece, glued it down and dressed it up in ground cover. Doesn't look too shabby.

This shot at the Finished Paper Warehouse nicely shows the texture effect.
