My first gas station and service station. Everything is scratch built except for the jack and the cars In it. There will be more things in it that you can see here http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=101542

It's missing a wall because I cut it 1 cm too large:(

The roof is covered with clamps because it got warped somehow.

Your station seems to be right on the money for proportions and very accurately done.Did you have a real station to measure and draw plans from?Really nice work so for.The only bad thing about building scale gas stations is they take up so darn much room when they are finished.

Room is not a problem because I have a place to put it and can store some cars in it.

Nice work. I'm building on a diorama garage myself. Actually its my big one that i started many years ago. Can you post a link to where you printed off the boxes and fan belt sleeves??

Sorry, I didn't save it.

I really like this project. I worked at a service station similar to this for many, many years. I think your capturing the look well so far. The finishing touch would a couple of old men out front on a bench drinking bottled Cokes, or maybe RC Cola (we always had hang-arounds).... Great work!
