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

I used a small coat hook for the light frame and cut off the end of it.....then cut a small piece from the end of a styrene tube.
I searched through Michael's costume jewelry untill I came up with something "bell like" that looked like a fancy light shade and superglued it to the light frame.
And... voila! Now the 1/32 scale folks can see in the dark.....
One more little detail done!

Now this is cool Tony. Very nicely done. The roof needs a stove pipe sticking out and maybe add lights to the free-standing sign with power line running from the corner of the store, complete with glass insulators?
Thanks Brad. I don't know about the glass insulators... but the rest of your suggestions are very do-able, especially the stove pipe. But I'll have to check on the lights for the sign. From various source pics I've seen, the pylon signs don't appear to be lit in the '20's to early '40's era. (Phew.... that makes my life easier! LOL)
Thanks for you comment Danny.

If you decide to do glass insulators check out the bead dept. Lots of different styles to choose from.
