FOS Green Cab Company--Finished Structure
« on: August 12, 2019, 04:40:01 PM »
Hello all--below are two pics of the FOS free kit from a few months ago, Green Cab Company. I did not do a build thread on this as it was very basic and straightforward.  I added some goodies from the details box: some old time gas pumps and a corner street lamp, but otherwise built it pretty close to the pilot model.

Below a close-up. The black vehicle to the right is a Jordan kit. The yellow and green vehicle is a Sylvan kit. The gas pumps are by Chooch and the streetlamp is rescued from an old FSM kit that did not survive a layout tear-down.


Pulled back to see where this fits in, with apologies for the poor lighting. The city block is FOS The Terminal kit. I finally got it located on the resort end of my layout. You can see the seaside roller coaster in the background.

George, I really like how you model. The building comes to life. I have spot on my layout where something like this would fit perfect and I have the parts I think to make it, so I am going to put a picture up on my to do board and see what can be done. Thanks for sharing, really nice.

Hey George:

Looks just great. Is that a roller coaster in the background. How about some pics.

Thanks for the extra comments, everyone.
I will take some pics of the roller coaster and post in a few days.  It is the centerpiece of the seaside fun pier on the resort end of my layout. It is a true HO scale roller coaster kit by Coaster Dynamics.  A plastic kit with pre-finished bents, so not terribly painful to assemble. And it operates!
