A new structure has been added to our City Structures line. The billboard has a sign area measuring 3 x 6 inches (O scale 12 x 24 feet). Overall height is about 5 inches. The billboard is constructed with white styrene plastic. The board area will be either gray ABS or white styrene. The billboard will be sold either undecorated or with a sign of your choice. The sign is printed on heavy card stock paper. We will also print decals and attach to white styrene if desired at an extra cost. Simply contact us and let us know what you would like.
This is an O scale version of Walthers HO Scale Cornerstone Construction Site. The construction site is a 3-story structure with a 2-story annex. There is a partial cement floor on the second level of the 3-story section. Construction ladders and a stairway are included. A light bar with three 12-16 volt lamps for night work is included. Foot print for the basic structure is 20 x 7 x 9.5 (h).
The design for the building can be modified to suit your layout's needs. Just contact us with your specifications and we will be happy to send a quote.
A perfect companion structure for the construction site is the Portable Office (see the Service Sheds web page in the Plastic Structures section)
I bought Dave's Superstation a while back, repainted it and added new decals to make it into a Shell Service Station. The one thing it was missing though was a pump island. Our version of the pump island is shown below. So far I have modified two gas stations for customers - see pictures below. Please navigate to the OnLine Store for price. If you are interested in having Dave's station customized for your layout please contact me for a quote.
As with telephone poles every town needs a cell phone tower to look realistic. These towers are now available for order. Each tower stands approximately 14 inches high with a 1 ½ inch footprint. Please visit our On Line Store for price and availability.

Coal gas plants were common sites from the mid 1800's all the way up to the 1950's before being replaced by natural gas (a by product of oil refineries) for heating and electricity for lighting. Coal gas was used for street lamps and gas lights in buildings and eventually home heating and cooking. At one time more than 50,000 gas plants operated in the US.
In order to fully model a coal gas plant the following structures would be needed:
Model Structures has designed a coal gas manufacturing facility that contains the process building, precipitation tanks and one gasholder. The process building starts out as the MTH 30-90105 Public Works building. It is dismantled and repainted. A lighted interior is added that consists of structures necessary for cleaning and filtering the gas. Door lamps are also included. External precipitation tanks are added along side the building.Then the most recognized structure - the gasholder is added.
I have purchased and customized Atlas O's Dave's Superstation for some customers. Those who have purchased usually added the separate gas pump island shown below. The gas station can be purchased and remodeled separately. The remodeling consists of knocking out all windows and replacing all with Grandt Line windows except the office window which is custom made. Front and back office plus bathroom flooring is added (photo copied to thick paper) and extra lighting is added. The outside is repainted to customer specifications.
