I bought these metal model gas pumps from 42packard here on Oldgas. I painted and assembled them this past week. It was fun. I tried to do them the way they would have been.

















I like shoebox pumps [Linked Image]

If Im not mistaken, these are part of the pumps that Spec- Cast did back in the middle 1980's in 1/8th scale . I bought a couple of the "Taper - Shell" pumps done in Shell livery and gave them away as Christmas presents one year . Great find ! Ed Shaver


see ya on the road folks !
