I gathered lots of the 4×4 light bluish grey plates together today (which I had picked up at Leicester Square in December) to see what I could do with them. I also found quite a few of the dark green 1×2 curved slopes with no studs (11477) which I thought would be good for accent colours. I made four cubes from the plates like this:
Then I added various control panels, the smooth slopes and other greebles to give this industrial plant which I have dubbed the Green Energy Plant.
Another significant piece was the (old) dark grey chunk on top of what I like to think of as the biomass reactor. It took some searching in the catalogue but apparently it’s an Engine, 2 x 4 x 4 (Life on Mars) 30535 from 2001, which only appeared in 2 sets in this colour. Each side is flanked by another old part, Bar 1 x 8 with Brick 1 x 2 Curved Top End (30359a) which adds more interesting greebles. Stick on a handful of 1×1 round bley tiles and a couple of hoses from a partial Benny’s Spaceship lot I got before Christmas, and there you have it.
