Product Description

This is the HO Scale Al's Victory Service Station - Kit - 4 x 6 x 2-1/16'' from Walthers.

Product Features
  • Not too long ago, stations like Al's could be found at every busy city intersection and along most major highways. Premium was 25 cents a gallon, maps were free, restrooms were clean. There was a mechanic on duty who could fix anything. And Al always wore a spotless uniform when he came out to pump your gas, check the oil and wash the windows.
  • Introduced in the late 1930s, box style stations like this sprang up from coast to coast and remained a standard well into the 1950s. Combining the office, restrooms and service bays into one structure, they provided a uniform, neat appearance that attracted motorists. Lots of windows made them bright and cheerful, as did the enameled steel walls decorated in company colors. Although newer stations have taken their place, many survive today as independent garages, body shops, retail stores and offices. A few have even been converted into private homes!
  • Authentic styling looks great on any vintage or modern street scene.
  • Optional pumps are included to match your era, along with colorful decal signs for the finishing touch. Just add vehicles, figures and interior details, available separately, to create a busy scene anywhere along your layout. Finished Model Measures: 4 x 6 x 2-1/16 10 x 15 x 5.8cm

typical high quality Walthers structure
By joe.defeo January 3, 2014
Nicely detailed building, moderately difficult to assemble with easy directions to follow for the most part. Highly recommend to dry fit all parts before cementing them in place. Model comes in white plastic and clear glass, highly recommended to add painted detail to make your version distinctive and to bring it to life. Comes with 3 different types of Gas pumps so can Model any era from 1900 to modern times. Typical high quality Walthers' structure and would recommend it without reservation.

nice representation of a 1950s gas station
By jackson34953 January 19, 2015
I used some medium black sewing thread glued to the side of the gas pumps to represent the gas hoses.Also painted the interior walls and added a balsa wood lift with a car in the left bay.

Excellent Project
By ronwalk38 June 27, 2015
The Als Gas Station is a nice stylist building with three different gas pumps options, three different styles of road side signage, and several other accessories to add to a realistic service station scenery. The inspection of the kit revealed very little molding flash, all the parts where straight, and accounted for. The directions were clear and easy to follow; but took a little work to get all the building corners and foundation to fit together correctly and seamless. This kit was molded in all white and the walls were thin, which may cause some problem with adding an interior light. I printed the garage doors, building doors, windows frames and top row of structures bricks red; which give the building a nice modern look. Overall this was a great project and fit well in my city district scenery.
