Here are a few pics of my latest G scale 1920's style gas station,

that will be going in my railroad garden in the next week or so.


I have to give credit to the absolutely gorgeous Bar Mills HO scale Shady Grove Texaco kit,

as the pattern for my scratchbuilding efforts.


Hope you enjoy my pics.

More to come, as I complete my detailing.

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...

Here are some pics of my G scale gas station that will go in my railroad garden this weekend.

The station was scratchbuilt using the plans from the absolutely gorgeous Bar Mills HO scale Shady Grove Texaco kit.

I used 1/24 as my scale.

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.

Thanks Ray.
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.
