A completely assembled and decorated low relief service station.

 

The building is constructed of plastic and has a shallow front of a garage with an office and a single service stall. In front is an overhang protecting two gas pumps. Ray's wrecker is parked by the garage door with illuminated headlight shining brightly. The building's footprint is 6-1/16 inches by 10-7/8 inches.

Illumination requires a Menards 4.5 volt power supply, Menards SKU 279-4061, 279-4062, or 279-4050, sold separately.

This is a perfect structure for that odd spot where you have too much empty space, but lack room for a full-sized building. The office is just 1.25 inches deep, but the front design belies that. The steep roof connects with a large overhang, masking the shallow nature of the structure. The front has Texaco graphics and signage.

Two old-school gas pumps are placed between the supports for the roof, and in the background you can see a container for Texaco products, a toolbox, cans, and a Ray's Wreckers sign.

There is a taller sign, evoking memories of gasoline brands of the past, without internal lighting, but just a heavy painted sign that might move a bit in the breeze.

Ray has a pretty impressive tow truck, and it is parked in front of the garage door. There are several logos for Ray's shop on the 1956 model truck. When power is applied, the office and the truck headlights come on.

The backside of Ray's is a cardstock printing of the rear of a building. It has printed gray roof tiles and a rear wall has a brick design. There is also signage for Texaco and Pepsi. The result is that you don't have to have anything behind it - anyone looking at it from a distance it will think it looks like a full-sized structure.

Ray's Wreckers is a clever building that is designed to fill those locations too small for a factory or warehouse, but not for this gas and go!
