[Blast Furnace Part 1] SUPERDETAILNG A WALTHERS BLAST FURNACE PART 1: While the Walthers Blast Furnace is a wonderful kit and the only one of its kind in HO & N Scales, it is rather thin on details and has a some errors.

This video shows how to transform a Walthers kit into something approaching museum-quality. Along the way you will learn scratchbuilding techniques and about the materials and tools needed to make outstanding models.

The video shows how to add tons of detail to an existing kit that includes walkways, handrails, ladders/cages, prototypical pipe bends and breeching, the left-off piping, three kinds of piping valves (goggle, gate and hot blast), gas burners, new top works pipes, stairs, walkways & explosion doors; casthouse floor detail & cranes; skip hoist stairs, walkways, cable sheaves and cables; and the highline. Finally the finished model is painted and mounted to the base with trackage. The presenter is Jeff Borne, known for his heavy industry HO-scale layout “Columbia River Steel Corp.”

Includes a self-starting CD with a presentation that plays like a book on a computer, which works in PCs (WIN 2000/XP/Vista/7) & Macs, with 290 photos and a list of parts used in the project. CD contents can be printed out. Video is 86 minutes long. $24.95 + free shipping (in the United States only)

[Blast Furnace Part 2] SUPERDETAILING A WALTHERS BLAST FURNACE PART 2: The second part of the video series shows how to convert the Walthers Blast Furnace into specific prototypes, specifically the top works of United States Steel Carrie #7 furnace in Pittsburgh and one of the USS Ensley blast furnace top works in Birmingham, Alabama. Three-pass stoves, the type with smokestacks on top, are constructed using Walther's stoves and the Walthers Electrostatic Precipitator is highly detailed with correct piping. A merchant iron blast furnace is also created from scratch, including three-pass Whitwell-type stoves. Again the presenter is Jeff Borne.

Includes a self-starting CD with a presentation that plays like a book on a computer, which works in PCs (WIN 2000/XP/Vista/7) & Macs, with 385 photos. Also on the CD are construction instructions on building the models and a parts list for each project in Adobe Acrobat format. Video is 95 minutes long. $24.95 + free shipping (in the United States only)
