I did say yesterday I was planning a series of modified or fresh creations.....and here we have the first of the fresh creations of mine.
Titled - Octan Tyre Fitting Bay, it's designed to sit near the 7993 service station being of similar design.

Thanks 'Jack' :classic: , actually it was a spark of something I remembered how to use gears and friction pins to control movement thus we have one of my simplest yet useful mini-creations to come from my twisted mind ! :laugh:


Edit - shortly I will photograph it with my 7993 service station to show well how it can fit in ! :wink:
