Been wanting to update but weather and problems kinda slowing things down. Managed to get trim roughed in around the base, But, wanting to seal the bottom, I used some enamel paint that's taking FOREVER to dry. Need to clean the whole thing up a bit.



Meanwhile I have laid out all 4 of the facade graphic pieces.

Love it Clay...looking great to me. I had a large station diorama about 1/2 way done till we had a tornado here that took it. I dont have the skills,etc. to scratch build the building like you do I used the MRC Gas station kit and modified it. keep up the great work..!

At last, some forward progress to report. I have finished the base trim, with some small scallop shell accents ( to cover screw heads), The driveway is down and painted, the pump island and canopy supports are permanently in place. Just need to put some grass along the sides and in the rear, somehow.  ( Without driving 30 miles to a hobby shop) I have a plan that I hope will work out !  In the photos, the pumps and roof fascia are mocked in place.

Dig the actual shell usage. Nice sign construction and shape.

What could be more fun than watching grass grow ? I guess making some might come in a close 2nd.
Sifted  some sawdust thru a window screen, a 15 year old bottle of craft paint that hadn't dried up, and a spray bottle from some cleaner.
Spray, turn, spray, turn, spray, turn, and so on.
We'll see how that works.

Excellent progress and development! Just love seeing the signage taking shape and that grass looks like, well, grass.

I have finally gotten back to the hobby bench after completing a couple of other projects.  I have the column extensions that  hold the facade in place permanently on the roof. I will be continuing to make the facade now.

Excellent progress. Loving the architecture, you've really captured the feel of the building.

The upper columns have been capped, and the  built up roofing is being gravel coated. (fine sifted soil thru a window screen). Figured it would be time to do it now, before the facades go on.

Started trimming out the upper columns. The roof will angle slightly upwards from the edge to join the fascia.
