Reminds me of one old gas station out here, the locals say it closed in the mid 1930's. Same design but concert construction.

Very nice, I do like the pumps, they set the era.... Though here in Australia similar style pumps were being used in rural areas till the 1960's...

Very nice work. I'm saving your pictures. I have a Texaco station in progress myself... yours is great!
I really like the night shots. I plan to sneak an LED into the top of the pumps.

The large lettering was done with frisket paper, airbrushed then outlined by hand. The other lettering is freehand. I did want some old time, small town type feel.
The building is 5/8" wood with sheet plastic siding. Roof is real tar paper. Window and doors are Grandt line. Signs are a mixture of ebay purchases and on-line printouts.
This will be my first true test of our southern climate on a scratchbuilt structure designed for exterior use. Time will tell.
