Specific Item Information: Ernie's Gas Station kit design is based on a real gas station that stood along old US Route 66 in Carthage, Missouri. This station was erected in the 1920's or 1930's. Built as a small cottage design station, it was soon decided that an addition had to be built to protect the service area from the extremes of Midwestern weather. This station was managed in the early 1960's by my friend, Ernie Armstrong, who passed away on July 23, 2002. The station was closed in the 1980's. Heavily modified, the structure still stands today along historic US66 and is now used as a pet grooming business. All the appropriate signs are included to build this station as shown. Also included are signs to build the station as a small independent station called Ernie's. Gas price signs include pricing appropriate for most eras modeled, including today. Kit features laser-cut exterior and interior walls, doors, window frames, trim, floor, pre-printed stickyback shingles and sign frames. Included are gas pumps and island, chimney, tire display, soda machine, a great selection of authentic full color decals and signs acquired from photographs of prototype gas stations, and a laser-cut sign for roadside. Laser-cut wood billboard frame with authentic signs. N kit dimensions (building only)…….(2.75" x 1.75")

Road Name History:
Commercial structures are any buildings or other man-made structures whose principal purpose is trade. These can be high-rise officer towers, gas stations or fruit stands. Any structure where end-user customers come to buy things from sellers of that product or service are consider commercial structures.

This group will therefore include quite large as well as quite small buildings. Models of these buildings might be kits or pre-assembled. They might be painted or undecorated. They might come with a host of accessories and figures or they might be fairly Spartan.
