Having spent a few years as a power Engineer (36) I just had to get this kit. Reminds me of plants I worked in
and visited over the years.

Suitable for 1/48 and up. figures are 2 In in height, I do not need Rick Grimes or a Zombie though. A 1/48 scale figure looks OK along side the boiler.

The kit go's together like LEGO, an looks very abandoned . While to small for my power plant building, I will likely build a small plant for it, with a dark and cluttered interior for it to go in.

I wonder if the kits have the ''lumpy Lego'' look when assembled?

It is better looking then a LEGO set, not really lumpy.

It is not a fore ground model by any means, unless installed toward the back of a structure. A fair number of
cast fitting's and piping included. I am thinking of using a couple of the flickering candle lights for lighting in a yet to built building structure.
Sat down last night and assembled the kit, will add a few items and likely repaint some bits and pieces. Was short 1 length of piping, but styrene will be used for a replacement.
In some of the assembly AMF (applied mechanical force eg
hammer and wood block <G>;) was necessary to get some of the pieces to lock together.
The biggest hassle was, with each assembly step the necessary parts could be in 2 to 3 separate bags.
Looking for a 1/48 scale figure to place and take a couple of photos of the assembled boiler room, and suitable brick to portray the brick wall which has fallen.
