I ordered the Fisher Fuels kit from Railroad Kits several months ago after seeing George's kit that he purchased at the MR EXPO in Lancaster, PA last fall. It was the perfect size to fit in this spot and added another industry to be served by my railroad.
|Here the completed structure and tank are placed in the scene to determine the best positioning for the structures.|
|Once the final location was decided I installed the building, tank and unloading platform. After that I added a layer of Sculptamold to level the area and added a layer of fine sand for an initial scenery base.|
|The final scenery was then added to the area.|
|Extra details such as the old gas pump, oil tanks in for repair, various barrels and boxes and figures were added to complete the scene.|
|A tank car full of fuel oil has been spotted for unloading as a tank truck fills up with oil for for home delivery.|
|Here is a look at the office from the opposite side. Notice the added details around the lot and distressed siding on the building.|
I am very happy with the way the Fisher Fuels kit turned out and how it filled an empty space on the layout. Have a look at the Railroad Kits web site and check out all their kits and you might just find one that will suite your needs.
