MOC - Octan servo

Recommended Posts

Hi all, for a while I had a baseplate with a few tiles slapped on it sitting next to my row of modulars with the intention of it one day becoming a service station. Over the weekend I sat down one arvo to make a bit of progress on it and in no time the basic building and walls were made. While I was on a roll I kept going and threw in whatever I felt was necessary for a typical servo and this is what I've come up with so far:

The two pumps are quick mods of the one from the 3180 tank truck set, and it's nice to have a more permanent home for them now.

The attendant's all smiles since he's nice and safe behind the top notch security bars :wink:

For the late night customers there's a night pay window, there's also the usual junk chucked around the side.

A basic interior does the trick since I leave the roof on the majority of the time anyway.

Each lane allows for a 7-wide, but realistically, anything more than 4-wide is going to take up a lot of the available real estate.

I'll be periodically updating this when I get more ideas but for now I'm happy with it (it sure beats the empty lot that it started out as :grin: ). Let me know what you think and feel free to leave any questions or constructive criticisms.

It looks good! The security bars are a nice touch - as is, of course, the 'usual junk' round the back. And I really like the ad hoc exposed brick details.

Nice service station, reminds me a lot of the local Caltex Woolies around here (the kind that doesn't have a full shop, just a small area to pay etc)

Very nice work indeed.

The security bars are a nice touch

In DelVaLUG City, we need full on bullet proof Lexan. Heck, even our garbage truck has a long gun attached to the side next to the shovel.

The interior of the store looks awesome and all the tiles really make this even more awesome!

Thanks everyone. Jonwil, I did base this off my local Caltex Woolies which has a full shop, but I had to make sacrifices to keep it compressed to a single baseplate.
