This Amoco station sort of still stands at the corner of 3rd Ave and Preston Ave here in Richmond Virginia . it was built in 1937 and sold gasoline until about 1959 when the construction of I - 95 came by and cut off most of it's traffic . What you see her is the way I plan to show it in the year 1948 during the show season . Scrubba

Very cool Scrubba !!!!! I enjoy building models, been doing it off and on since I was a kid. Do you use model car kits for the vehicles or do you build everything from scratch? Lately the only thing I've done have been 1/64 scale vans. That's the only size early chevy vans that seem to exists. The Lindberg mini lindys are the only 2nd gens that I know of and there's a Burger King toy that is the closest thing to a 1st gen that I've found. If you know of anything else I'd really like to hear about it. Here's a couple of pic's of the BK toys that I've done.

For what it's worth Linburg did a 1968 Chevrolet Van in 1-32 nd scale back in about 1968. I havent seen it since then . Ive even thought seriously about doing such a van and then casrting it in epoxy resin . The difference would be that 1-32 is too small for me anymore . First , I have failing eyesight and then too my arthritis isn't getting any better . The larger scale is way easier to work off of .
Now to answere the question as to the little accessories in the Amoco station , YES , i SCRATCH BUILD 96% OF EVERYTHING YOU SEE . Iv'e yet to find what I require in things like oil lubesters , jacks , oil cans and then there aren't any gasoline pumps .
Currently I'm building a Crown Central gasoline station that was built in Highland Springs Va. in about 1956. The style of building was refered to as a " Twin Chimney " . I want to show this one as thing would have looked in about 1963 .

G- Man , currently Im doing a step by step on the "twin Chimney Crown Station using simple Foam - Core board you see at Wal Mart . If anyone is interested I can post the link so everyone can sign in and see the latest pictures of this station as I can get them into a Photobucket account . Generally , it takes me about six to eight months to do an entire filling station . Scrubba
