SOAKING PITS - Part 1
I'm tucking my soaking pits/blooming mill/ingot stripper,et al, into a small 10"x24" space. The ingot yard and soaking pits will be pretty much prototypically modeled, but the actually rolling mill will only be represented by a single roll stand. The photo shows the .125 styrene "foundation" of the soaking pit structure and the start of the steel framework. The columns are built according to info found in Dean Freytag's Cyclopedia of Industrial Modeling.
