I cut the flange off the top of the metal cast base and epoxyied a spinner hub cap in it's place.



Then I found the perfect size tubing I need. I think some small drill bits came in it.
Pretty fragile, and It must be real glass because it was glowing red where I tried trimming it with the Dremel cut off wheel. But, I got them to size pretty good and capped off with some Chevvy dog dish hub caps.

Stuff drying, so I bit the bullet and started joining the building to the roof!



Applying trim to close the gaps. Thought this would be a piece of cake, but the way things are with me.....I was wrong !

The dual tanks are on the 3rd pump. A bit more tweaking on the shell globe and this segment will be complete and, I can continue getting the station together and in place !

Outer wall top trim is done, Now, I'm laying out side walk pieces before mounting the building to the foam baseboard.

The station is now glued to the foam base. The sidewalk is down and painted (badly) and now I'm attacking the drive area. The space between the pump island and the walkway is bricked, So, I'm in the process of scoring and embossing. Again. PIA !
In these photos, the pump island, canopy supports, and finished pumps are mocked in place.

Great work, Clay. I don't envy you laying all that brickwork on the ground.

BTW: Why is the building dated 1999?

Dunno, Mike I had to zoom in on a couple of fotos to see what was on those plaques, Finally made out that date. I can only assume that was when they reconstructed the station on the museum grounds.

Eons ago, Gaz, I had some plastic embossed brick facing sheets for model RRing. Don't have close access to hobby shops now, and besides, I don't like, or can afford, to pay money for stuff I can do myself. I have way more time than I have money. I got this !
Cheers,

Little bit of a slowdown. Wanting to get the base foam dressed and the pavement part down.
But, meanwhile, I did start thinking about the facade. I'll have to do 3 of these. I sent away to Amazon and got a small bag of scallop shells this size.
