Dedburgh Petrol Station built
« on: April 19, 2018, 11:06:54 PM »
In quite a few scenarios of the zombie games the grandchildren like playing the survivors have vehicles so "we" decided that grandad had to build a petrol station to fill up the cars and trucks.  So a weekend was spent designing, measuring building and painting.

The building is made from foamcore and the thick card that is used for picture framing.

Thanks for the kind words.  The whole thing only took a day to build and paint and was virtually free as I had everything in the cupboard.

They did help with gluing and painting (hence the artfully curved front wall).  In fact they were the ones who found the petrol pumps - they are the plastic bits from grandad's interdent toothbrush things.

Oh my - brilliant use of interdental brushes. Noted with intention of copying😀
