Starting another new structure for the addition:



The Gas Station at shady grove. it's pretty small, only about 2 X 3" including the canopy. I was originally going to change the station's name but then I found that Texaco was in Canada so I guess I can keep it.

I started with assembling a few parts for painting as assemblies. Like the foundation and the two pillars that form the canopy supports.









I sprayed almost everything with a light gray primer, then the walls and canopy parts were airbrushed in Reefer White. The two canopy pillars are made of 4 interlocking parts each. They needed a bit of cleanup before they went together properly.

J L Innovations has lots of detail pieces with Texaco on them. Also in tbe marketplace are several Texaco tankers, flatbeds and towtrucks out there to complete the scene

Thanks everyone. I've been looking for a Texaco truck of some kind. Not sure If I'll just buy one or make one.

I built up the main walls





I didn't like how the reefer white turned out so I gave all the walls a quick re-spray with white primer. it seemed to cover a bit better. I used 'wedgewood green' on the doorframes and corner posts. the windows are all peel and stick construction but I used some glue on the frame themselves for extra insurance.

before I assemble the walls I'm going to add some signage since the structure is so small and delicate when completed.

Glen,

Nice little building project. You got me to check out Bar Mills site to see what's available.

I'll be checking in on the progress of the build.

Hi Glen. Looking good so far.
Re the truck. CMW Mini Metals make a fuel truck, and a stake bed truck and also a salesman car all for Texaco.
And there are probably other manufacturers ones too.

Glen,

Iíve rarely found reefer white to be very good for structures. Itís just too white or something and it doesnít go on very smoothly. Looks like youíve had a similar experience.

Mike

I found Apple Barrel Antique Parchment to be a reasonable substitute for white or at least mixed with white.

I made some good progress over the past few days.




I added the signs to the walls and the canopy. I would have rather the larger signs have been dry transfers instead of the paper but they turned out okay.




And I also built up the pillars for the canopy. There is a basic box that I built up and painted, then there are colored overlays added.










With that all done I can start the main assembly.
