Hey Chris, At one time, I was going to put a Richfield Gas OF Power globe on it. It still has the globe holder under the glass top. I think they look great with a globe also. Thanks Kent.

Never knew pump guts could look so good as in your Bennett. I like the 70 too. Richfield colors and logo's sure make a great fashion statement, I love um.

Little tidbit...Exxon tiger(and tail). Neighbors owned a Exxon station a while back, and were changing gas brands, so they gave me the tiger/tail. It came off the flat canopy roof over the gas pumps. The tiger bolted on up there and the tail hung over the side of the canopy. I was going to put it on my garage roof but ya needed a flat roof to make it look right. It's made of 3/4 plywood with angle iron brackets on back.

Kent. The first gas station model I did way back in 2004 was a former Richfield station from right here in Richmond Virginia . It was built in 1923 and was built in a very well to do neighborhood even by todays standards . I spent every bit of a couple of thousand on the model too. Meanwhile the one time I did show it , it was copletely shunned by the judges at a very large contest here. I was so discusted that I put it away in the attic . I probably need to set it up and post pictures of it here. I showed it as it would have looked in 1959 shortly before the first building was torn down because the overhead canopy didn't meet fire saftey codes and was considered hazardous .
See, the 10 X 10 building was built of Stucco. The matching canopy butted the face of the building and it too was of Stucco. There was a grease rack but it was next to the sales office .
The structures were replaced in 1965 and done as a rather plain Colonial Revivial with a single attached shop. In 1968, the Richfield brand was displaced by Sinclair here in Virginia . Soon that was replaced by B P . The station operated as a gasoline station well into the mid 1980's whereas , the station simply wasn't up to modern standards and it was turned into a dry cleaner drop site . Ed Shaver
