Coaling Tower

Im tired of waiting to start the co-op so I moved on for now and planted the seeds for the coaling tower.  I decided the best way to make it look like concrete is to cast it out of plaster.  This is a first for me but it seems to be moving okay.  I reinforced the plaster in the same way you would concrete.  I used strips of plastic styrene as re-bar and it worked well.  So until I have more done.
