I like it, especially the level of detail work on the scratch built parts! Only thing that throws it off for me is how the cylinders don't line up with the support pillars. Having them continue up throughout the structure will add the feeling of weight to them instead of having them offset and unsupported.

so while waiting for green stuff to do welds I thought I would do some pipework connecting silos etc
this one was made from galvanic magnavent, pipes and the red pipe is from rocket launcher from firework night with serial box cut in strips and miniature modelling nuts also managed to start next level

Great stuff. That’s coming along swimmingly. And your attention to detail with the barnacles on the bottom is fantastic.

Many thanks, that is indeed an interesting piece...the flat side has its merits...

As for glueing stuff to that slick plastic , there are two options...:
One, you drill the plastic and shove the rods in it...or you use a mixture of super glue and backing soda ... together this forms an evil crystalline mess...sturdy as hell...but one knock could still scrap stuff off... you could sand of course the to be glued surfaces first...that can help...or carving thin lines....

The upper star like structure is also highly promising!

I found that mitre super glue where you get a spray first to dry it then the glue works about the best up to now seems stuck ok

Those air fresheners look interesting, thanks for the pics. Also, I'm loving those little touches on the supports.
