The project take inspiration from old 1930's style Service Stations (Magnolia Company) that sits along the streets of the United States of America. This project can be fit on City brand also on Modular section with some little changes.
The standard baseplate for the building is a double 16x32 studs. In picture i've change the baseplates with a 32x32 double road plus a 16x32 and another 16x16.
The structure is made with tan and dark tan bricks to simulated old walls that loosing the plaster.
For access to the interior, the roof can be (carefully) removed in 2 pieces.
Removing the white plates, on the ridge of the roof, can able to open the building in half for making more playable.
The interior are divided into:
- Workshop area (repair veichles and tyres - buy accessories);
- Storage / Technical room;
The workshop area is rich of details. The shelves can handle most of the tyres used in past or recent Lego's official vehicles. There's a car lift (working) created using the old mechanism of Lego #850 Forklift.
Also a skylight can be opened. The car lift can handle a lot of vehicles (4 to 6 stud wide) with limitation on height and length.
The shop area is filled with phone, cash register and a ventilator. Also an hidden gun under the table.
Some technic bricks are used for simulated the water and electrical pipes from the storage room into the bathroom and workshop area. Added led lighting system both internal and external.
On the exterior 2 fuel pumps (1950's style pump), and some minor objects (litter bin, water dispenser, used tyres).
The set are designed for recreated a mid-1950s era, so the Service Station had to look older than the ambientation.
