managed to get the next bit of terrain finnished for the clubs african adventures:-
the village gas station, ownd by joseph zvimby, selling caltex fuel of course:-
the main building is the s&s shanty shop with more added detail suitable for a garage, like oil drums, tyres, vending machine, crates, tarps, jerrycans and a working area under cover.
i also replaced the roof with some industrial type box profile and added the compressor for tyre inflation to the back wall,
there is also a pallet of spuds for sale, so often seen in uk gas stations, and an engine recently taken from a vehicle,
the roof of the work area is removable, as someone will get his apc stuck under it at some point.
the box with the 2 circular fans are the compressor for air tools and pumping up the tyres ect.
the fuel pumps, sign and twin bar barriers, are from a kids car set, a little large but not too bad, the car ramps are just lolly sticks and the roof water tank is from the s&s shanty detail set.
all the cars are the cararama 1/72 diecasts.
the decals are another attempt at these do it yourself ones and i am very pleased with the results, i trawled the interweb looking for suitable car makers logo's, tryes, oil and food signs, just downloaded them into a desktop publishing program and fiddled with the sizes till i was happy with it.
i was surprised that even in a very small scale version you can still read what the signs say.
i now have quite a few decals left for future projects.
we are looking into either selling the sheets or actulay making the decals and selling them so you can add them to your own buildings ect.
i have more of these terrain features to post over the next week or so, but there are more pics here:-http://s513.photobucket.com/albums/t339 ... ?start=all
thanks for looking,
