Magee’s Tire Service.
« on: December 24, 2017, 09:35:04 AM »
My version of the Magee’s Tire Service.
Manufactured by Bar Mills at scale HO (1/87).
Mmmm...I’m Not happy with the publicity. Maybe I will remove and add a new one. The effect don’t look so real.  :-\
There is no base and the complements need to be added and painted. Once I’m building the layout I will “adapt” it... ???

Pollux

I am a lay down for pre war Chevrolet trucks. This, like mine is a 1941. The give away is that there is no key hole on the door like the 46’s had. 41and earlier had the key in the handle.  What it did was disengaged the handle. When locked the handle just went around and did nothing.

Again. 
Thanx
Bob
