I'm gonna have to check into Diarama's more often. If only I had a chip of the skill & patience you have to put this together.
What vehicles are you planning to display with it ?

You ever want to sell the Texaco as is PM me. Love Texaco. Beautiful Build by the way. I would settle for a specs list on the Texaco though.

This may or may not mean a thing to you but my Grandfather Emory Clark was the founder if Clark Oil back in the 1930’s. I didn’t have a roll in the company but growing up in the family these stations where a big part for my life. Looking at this model brings back a flood of memories. You have done a first class job so far and I would love to see photo of the finished model.

I does mean a lot to me. What are the odds you'd find this build? I've had a lot of help from people on this board, and the building is much more accurate than it would have been without them. I haven't forgotten it, I just need to finish a few things first.

I did get both toilets finished, I guess that's SOME progress.

Thanks for the compliments, and stay tuned. I will return to this and finish it!

Some good looking items at Doozy. Too bad I can't read Japanese.

Tom, the Tokiem Explorer gasoline pumps would have been "Very Correct " in a Clark station such as you are building . Ed Shaver

Neat items from Doozy until you do a yen to Dollar conversion, and you can't close the website fast enough.

It was correctly pointed out to me that the gas line to the furnace was broken. This has been repaired. the Clark staff appreciate the heads up on this potentially dangerous situation.

No, but I'm about ready to dive back in. I think I've figured out a way to have working flourescent lights inside, but I'll have to build it to see if it works right. Stay tuned, it's coming...

PURE EYE CANDY. Great details. This kind of fabrication is tedious but the results, well, here you have them: SPECTACULAR.


AND YES, DOOZY products are excellent.

i have been wathing this build foe quite awhile now and i am floored buy your attention to detail and your great talent for desighning and the making the things you need to do the build. when you said you damaged it a little in your small work room i felt so bad for you because i have the same problem where i do my work. if i turn to fast i can bang my head on somthing. its getting to the point that i look more like a hoarder than a model guy. but man do i love this station and i will watch it untill it is done.but at the same time i have my own little saying. ( THANK GOD ITS DONE. OR IS IT. ) :)
