Details are what make a great scene. That said, I hate painting details. Too much time for too little progress. I think that is why I have so many projects started, and have trouble finishing them. I am writing this while taking a brake from painting details on a gas station I 3D printed. Kind of the perfect segway to the details below.
One can never have too many details, and I love gas stations. This assortment is meant to detail multiple stations. The assortment includes some items I had previously used in my vintage tire shop diorama.
Many of the items, however are new, and were the first time I had printed them. The bulk oil container, all the oil can displays, the scissor jacks, and the gas cans (1, 2-1/2, and 5 gallon), and the Jerry cans are new.
The picture above is of the items as it is shown on the Shapeways web site. Direct link to the item: shapeways.com/product/gas-station-details-ho-scale
Here is a close up of a few of the items. The floor jacks, and jack stands are my favorites. These item would also be nice details in the back of a wrecker or pickup.
You should be able to click on the pictures to get an even bigger view. If anyone needs a special assortment, I can adjust what is included in any assortments and make a custom one to fit specific needs. I do it all the time.
All items were printed in FUD, Frosted Ultra Detail. I believe they would be better in FXD, Frosted Extreme Detail, but for the money, I can't see paying the difference on these items.
I included a few concrete blocks, as I have seen way to many used as axle stands. As a youngster, we
had a neighbor get trapped under his car, when it fell on him because the blocks failed. Duh, that is why they make good jack/axle stands. Luckily, the guy was fine, just wedged where he could not move, and had to wait on his wife to get home, and she called the fire department.
