The STONE SERVICE STATION "Sinclair HC /Shell Oil/ Flying A" Kit by Scale Model Masterpieces HO/HOn3/HOn30 1:87-Scale
Imagine just what happens to a boom town depot when the "rush" dries up and the beautiful stone depot and its activity are all but abandoned. And then along come the automobile and the demand for gasoline to run those automobiles and a need to occasionally fix the automobile. Some thrifty entrepreneur decides to save a few bucks by not having to build a Service Station and what better way to fill the Gas Station tanks but to have its own siding--or not!
This kit comes with the *original* beautifully detailed Thomas A York casting of stone, wood, and brick. First offered in the 1980s as the Short Line Stone Depot, the staining and weathering instructions have been updated to currently available products including easy to learn techniques in our Doctor Ben's How-To #2: "The ABC's of Staining Castings" booklet/instructional.

TheScale Model MasterpiecesPool Hall/Bordello HO/HOn3 kit is finally here, and it is simplyAMAZING! FYI It did take us around three years to get around to it. The design of this fantastic Craftsman kit much more like the 'original' 1979 version Thomas A Yorke Ent. did a number of years ago, But that's almost where it ends. We have used Tom Yorke 'original' hand-carved masters and createdtotally new castings to replace all that wood and time-consuming construction of the 2nd Floor Bordello, multi-pitched roofs, and both front facades. And,instead of just 10 or so castings, there are now 27 LabStone high-quality castings, Precision Cut Roofs, Glazing and Signs (the Baba O'Rileys Pool Hall sign is like not other!), 4-Color Laser Signs and window glazing, meticulous instructions and Options, lots of images, and included in this kit is a copy ofDoctor Ben's How-To #2: The ABCs of Staining Castings booklet.
