thnx guys and tony hmm whell i saw some of those hoses that where straight .. i didnt know they also are kinked .. hmm whell to be hounest .. the way it sits now works best because gluing it would be fragile ... i used pins and because its tight / straight it seems to hold great ..
but you think i should kink that hose then ?
Leave it as is Richard.... and pretend the frustrated gas station attendant just re -straightened it! I'm only speaking from the experience with my own small rural gas station anyway. I'm sure there would be hoses at some stations that were fixed down straight somehow.
Keep up the good work.. great to see such inspired scratch building.
I love your techniques Richard..... But one small comment for reality. The hose for the bell should not be straight. It would be laid loose and as each car drives over it, it gets kinked out of line (Kind of like a large curve.).
I know as I used to own a small rural gas station and I was constantly having to re-aligned that darn hose!
