Randy's Service Center is the first kit in a series of downtown urban background flats - called The Front Street Series. Randy's has a "street address" - 411 Front Street. There are several additional background structures to follow in this series - each with a neighboring Front Street address.
Randy's Service Center represents a local Auto Service and Heavy Truck Service shop - with appropriately-sized roll-up garage doors. The Truck Service side of the structure sets out a bit further than the Auto Service side, and both sections of the structure set onto a concrete sidewalk / driveway / base. Each structure is laser-scribed masonry - the Truck Service side is cinder block, and the Auto Service side is brick. The entire structure depicts painted block and brick - an old paint job that is showing its age.
The kit comes with tons of cool details - Tichy windows & doors for the masonry structure; laser-cut garage door assemblies; a sheet of signage for structure signs, the roof-top billboard, and various posters relevant to a service shop. It also includes laser-cut details and white metal castings to finish the scene - ladders, interior lift mechanisms to be visible through an open garage doors, drums, barrels, tires, crates, and a 3-piece welding cart assembly. Lots of great stuff in this kit !!
This structure will look great in an urban or sub-urban area that resides on the maybe "not so nice" side of the tracks.... but for sure, you'll get quality auto and truck service at Randy's !
Footprint: 8" x 3" depth x 5" high (to top of roof-top billboard)
Special thanks to David Zimmerman for his structure design ideas for this kit as well as his superb craftsmanship building up the test build of this model in HO scale.
