Excellent project, I think the weathering is just fine and dandy.

Where did you get the additional pieces from? Like the rivets, pipes, tap, etc.

Sorry had a memory lapse last night.  here is where I got mine

Yep these are the ones I use too. They're a lot easier to use then you might think. They're not as pronounced as the ones you've used though.

Thanks for the nice comments. Today the 80mm fans arrived. Now i can begin to finish two more towers.

@6milPhil:
the pipes are from the Chemical Plant set from Pegausu Hobbies or Urban War sells it as well.

That is amazing. A brilliant idea that is going to look fantastic, and provide an interesting alternate entry point to the vault.

Great  8)

Regarding the rust stains, have a go with the paint thinned down a bit and then build it up from there  :)
