Does anyone make a gas station suitable for the 1920s or 1930s in 28mm? I have seen more modern looking ones but not for the time period I need

The same seller also has this. Would be good for the owners shack behind the garage. If he combines shipping it would be a good deal.

In many cases, existing businesses simply installed a pump or two, so many would not be purpose built service stations anyway.

Here you go -- link From John McEwan of Reviresco who is an old-time wargamer.


And you can't get any less expensive than $4.00 USD for the build-it-yourself download.

If you go to link and scroll down, you will see our Sinclair gas station, which is based on a photograph of an actual 1930's Sinclair station. The model uses the front facade of a Plasticville 'O' scale Gas station, with all else added. The Dinosaur wasn't used 'til about 1932, but I looks cooler than the HC of the 1930 version.
