This build is a jump into the glory days of gas stations, when full service and free oil changes were the rule and the local station was a gathering place for neighbors.
My brick-built gas station is inspired to the Shell one located in Tucson (Arizona) and it’s packed with every details you’d expect to find.
It showcases an elegant Art Déco architecture completed with curved corners, a tower in the middle, a red outline all around the station and the inevitable Shell writing on top.
The build is three in one: the diner on the left, the garage/workshop on the right and the fully-equipped store located in the middle of the building.
A look at the back of the station reveals the three locations with many details and the different characters.
Outside there are two period gas pump with a beautiful Lego shell on top under a curved canopy. All around you can find tanks, signs, tyres and other stuff.
To complete the work I’ve built a red stepside pick-up truck, a tan Hot Rod and a reddish-brown roadster with some troubles (it’s housed in the garage indeed).
It was on my wishlist long since and finally I’ve found the time to built it as I had in my mind.
