Rural gas stop just ouside of Thomasville -1/32 scale

I'm getting a lot of inspiration from your garage dio. Pity you don't make your great resin bits and pieces in 1/32 scale........ but I'm guessing the demand would be very low. Probably wouldn't make financial sense.

But I have got some siding on the storage shed and metal roofs to both buildings.
Decision to be made.......
To paint the walls with faded, peeling red paint and white trim.... or to leave as weathered wood?

Finished weathering the building and added some period (I hope!) advertising signs. Seems this was typical for the era and this kind of gas stop.
"Fill 'er up!".
"Be back in a minute".
Have to do a little more research to find out what kind of pole signs and building signs for Mobilgas would be appropriate for the era. Soon the weather will turn and I'll get a little more time to work on it.

I've got the sign pole made and all the signage in place with the exception of the hanging sign for the pole. I have it made but still looking in the craft stores and dollar stores for some chain to hang it from the pole. I also intend to weather the signs a little.
I have found a few Greyhound bus signs to suit the era.... which explains the young lady waiting on the bench? Oh... and the sand in front of the pump?....... that's to soak up an oil spill from a previous customer!

where are the vehicles from?

The '29 Model A pickup is from the Pyro/Lindberg kit..... and the previous picture with the grey car at the pump is a Pyro kit of a 1930(something) Packard Coupe.
Thanks for the comment.

Looks great, Tony. And good luck with the e-test on the Ranger!
The Ranger passed the safety and E-test with flying colors and I even got the new windshield installed! Now it's all legal and on the road.... ready for a Canadian winter?
