Thank you for checking out this idea!
I have always been fascinated by chemical plants. The sheer size, the enormity and complexity of all those pipes, vats, machinery is mindbaffling. I have no chemical background so I apologize if I made mistakes in the machinery. I viewed hundreds of pictures before building something and I hope I was able to give it a nice "chemtechy" look.
The plant is built on two basic grey 32x32 stud ground plates and is made with approximately 1900 pieces.
On the right base plate, there are several treatment sites and chimneys, storage vats and spheres and a laboratory to check the quality of the chemicals produced.
All this complex machinery has to be checked regularly and repaired when needed of so several minifigures are added as well to keep an eye on things. There is a scientist in the lab, an overseer and 4 crewmembers going about their work (two females, two males).
To ensure their safety there are a lot of railings to prevent them from falling down and warning stripes on the floor. Several kinds of extinguishing materials are at hand in different colour tanks, in case of an accident.
On the left baseplate is a loading station for both rail and road vehicles. The conecting "ladders" can be moved up and down. The tankhose poles (no idea what they are called) can be rotated 360 degrees so either rail or road can be accomodated.
There is a small storage area for different kinds of drums and some pump equipment.
The structures of both places do not overlap so one can decide if both are to be placed next to each other or apart, or even rotated differently to create another layout.
I think the set would be fun to play with. There are a lot of playable features and it could be a central place for many lego city inhabitants. People going to work, goods being delivered or picked up. Maybe even a calamity, though we hope not ofcourse! Many people alreadt have firemen,police, hospital so they would come in handy just in case. The set could be used along with a train set or harbor to have goods delivered and distributed.
Some people even mentioned it could be used for a heroes/villains scene or even adapted to take part in a science fiction environment. The choice is yours :)
