These two photos were taken "earlier-on", before the completion of the diorama. Featuring the new "tip-out" windows by Northeastern, some new interior castings, and one of the several stacks of as-of-yet unpainted resin tires we made sure that even a smaller building like this had plenty of detail.

The concept here was simple... a "period-sensitive" auto car facility that would have graced any number of places before the big "chain" stores took over. This guy ("Pop" Gracin) would have provided only the essential & most basic of services & products. You want air freshener & stuff to shine you car with... "FORGET TA BOUT IT" !
Typical of many shops from the late 20's to the mid-fifties (and even some that are still in smaller towns) this kit is "loaded" with detail. In an effort to keep Bar Mills kits different than the rest this is what you'll find in this offering:
1. Printed interior detail walls for the "shop" part of the kit. The doors can be posed "open" because they feature details on both sides of them... a great way to feature the wooden floors and new white metal detail interior casting that come with every kit.
2. Check out the roof on the garage, not only does it feature some great new looking skylights... the interior framing has the look of a "lattice" steel truss to it. With a little effort this part of the kit could be displayed sans roof !
3. The kit features several new white metal castings... and some "not-so-white-metal" castings ! Before casting them into "tire piles" we had to cast & create several stacks of "tires" using about "160" individual tires to create the stacks of the things included with every kit ! Really... what's a "tire" store without tires ?
4. The usual Bar Mills E-Z roof rafter-tail system helps things to assembly quickly (considering)... Jim Mooney (our engineer) over-did himself on this one
