Al's Victory Service

A new addition to the layout is Al's Victory Service, a Wather's gas station kit. I painted the kit gloss white, added the decals and pencil lines then sprayed it with Testor's dullcote. The doors and four of the gas pumps were painted red. I added some interior detail like the lift, a couple of mechanics, customers in the waiting area with a bench and some appropriate auto repair signs. It was a fun kit to build and detail and is a perfect addition for all of the 8 cylinder muscle cars on the layout. Right now the station resides behind the Alogonquin Hotel.

A mechanic is hard at work on an exhaust pipe in the left bay while another mechanic gets ready to open the hood of the car in the right bay. A waiting customer can be seen sitting on the bench behind the large window waiting room windows

Muscle cars take advantage of the cheap leaded gas 

 A shot from the corner shows the detailed waiting area and the restroom door.

 A closer view inside the garage. Originally I had left the garage doors on but even with all their glass they blocked the interior detail so I opted for the open door look.
