Here is an interesting comparison of early gas pumps.

My friend Jon sent photos of his Jeep project.

He is having a problem with making a windshield,
and may have to vacu-form one.

The very first thing I do on a diecast model,
is darken the radiator with a black marker.

I use one with a pointed tip.

I admit that I am partial to Ertl's Ford Model T models.

Dave

This thing strongly remembers me of my Corvair Rampside.

Gerold

Those were pretty scarce here in the States.

But you are right, they do look similar.

Ertl's Maxwell model is nicely done,
and results in a good model for the layout once painted.

I choose to paint the stripe yellow,
as I felt white looks cheap...

As I remember, servicing these

was an exercise in unnatural body position.

A hobby, within a hobby, within a hobby, is collecting gas pumps.

I always intended to model a 1930s service station using these 1930 pumps.
