I haven't yet built a gas station dio... but that Dale Klee painting sure inspires me. And I'm keeping a close eye on your project!

Thanks for the inspiration.

Fantastic work!!! It looks like the station on the AMT Chevy P/U box. I have wanted to build a more modern gas station but after I built a older station I found they take up a LOT of room!!!
Maybe someday I will tackle one.
Here is two pics of my older more rural station.

Hi Dave! That's a cool model and great outdoor pictures as well! thanks for sharing!
Yes, that's right, buildings in 1:25 scale take a lot of room. I'm already quite used to that. Anyway I try to build the models in a way that I can disassemble them for storage.
