Building a Refinery
by John Burns
Here’s part of a 12 foot by 6 foot layout I’m building, which is loosely based on an oil refinery. Most of the items were scratch built.
The tanks in the foreground are coke cans. The piping on them is coat hanger wire.
The tall stacks are chrome pipe from the hardware store. The single, large round tank is a cookie can.
The round globe is the light fixture from a ceiling fan. Central valley Ladders and Walthers piping kits provided the finer details
