Those tanks turned out nice. Great idea on wrapping the PVC with a label.

I shot the walls of the office satin white and trim gloss tool red. All vintage color pictures of shell stations have this same, basic color schemes, and very little yellow.

I haven’t finished it yet, I test fit the roof tonight and I need to add the corner trim…


I also need to load the dock with 55 gallon oil drums…

Playa Desnuda’s Shell Oil’s office is now complete, and next up is ground cover, fencing, and signage. I am hoping to find a Classic Metal Works Shell tank truck for a good price…

I had a minor surgery this week, so my modeling has been minimal. All that I did was make three more trees and added some more ground cover to my N Scale Pacific Electric branch.

thanks, I gave up on using my cell, I started to use my tablet instead. My computer doesn't have an SD card slot, so I never use my Nikon. I am getting a new tablet soon, and it will have an SD card, so my photography will get better...

I like it. 8)  I have a soft spot for PCC trolleys having grown up in Pittsburgh area and rode them with some regularity. 

A suggestion I could make having done a fair amount of research on these for a future project would be to lower those Bachmanns.  The wheel C/L should be about level with the lower body skirt edge.  It makes a day and night difference.  Remove the silhouette stickers so they can be reapplied in the lowered position and start filing! ;)  It shouldn't be too bad especially since I'm not the one doing it. :)
