Hello all,

I like to show you my recent build of a AMT chevy '55 Nomad. After i finished it , i decided to make a diorama for it.

The inspirition was an abandoned shell gasstation at Peach Springs Arizona. I have some pictures from the earlier years. If some of you ( from AZ ? ) has some privat older foto's of this station, please let me know, i'm very interested in those pictures.

I hope you like it....

I thought the Chevy was awesome then I saw the station, wow! I have no other words left to describe but, some more awesome. They look like they were left there to weather about the same time. Love it, nice job. :wub:

Very nice work, love the garage!

Only because you are in Europe, I will mention that the '55 Chevy Nomad is a very rare and desirable car here in the US and wouldn't last long sitting there like that! It wouldn't go to waste!

Great job on the Nomad and the station, Eric! They look very realistic! The dent in the Nomad door is a nice touch. Your weathering and rusting techniques are perfect!
