I received through the mail this week a City Classics model kit of a gas station. I had ordered the kit quite early in the year, but the shipping had been delayed as the owner of City Classics was ill, as reported on the City Classics web site. Sadly, the website now reports that gentleman, Mr. James Sacco, has passed away a few weeks ago.
I have two other City Classics buildings already on the layout, so we'll have a brief look at them here first as well...I don't remember the name of this building's kit. I've had it for years, and frankly, I've never really finished up painting the details as well as I should have.
And so now here's my new Gas Station kit as received. I'll get to actually assembling the kit in the coming week or two. I've got some ideas for it, so it's probably not going to really look like it does in the photo on the package. I've got some ideas for it
Below is a look at the site where the gas station is intended to go. The space is about 10" x 10", and is located in between one end of the scrap metal recycler and the highway overpass.
The "trim" colours for the building are listed in the lower right hand corner of the sheet.
