Delivery of the garage machinery & equipment caused a bit of sweat on the brow of the driver

A very tight fit inside the garage, indeed!

Very nicely made. :thumbsup: The chief exec has good tastes. I imagine the truck driver had a few clenched muscles as he reversed in! :worried:

The garage manager breathed a sigh of relief at the departure of the "big rig" and welcomed in the fleet of "normal sized tankers" (his words) who will usually be housed here, though his first task will be to organise the re-painting of the fleet into Blackford Petroleum colours & logo

Looking forward to the tanker fleet's 'makeover', Andrew. 8-)

I saw what you did there. I don't know whether to accuse you of cheating, or congratulate you on your ingenuity  :uneasy:

That's not cheating, that's an essential part of the structure to ensure there is no ground erosion from a leakage of whiskey. I like the idea of transporting the "wee dram" in petrol tankers.  :D

If there was a leak (heaven forbid; spillage is frowned upon) wouldn't the cardboard just go soggy & collapse? :worried:

Well spotted!  Yes, the slight scale difference between the japanese model & the UK sized truck required a bit of artisitc licence :)  The garage manager is known to like a wee dram and the banter from the shop floor about a potential spill of the hard stuff is that he would have had his "mooth unner it before it hit the deck"  :)

I was a bit unhappy with the garage managers office roof (I know that it wont be seen.... but I have some thoughts in that direction too (along the lines of Cant Cove))



So I did a quick search on N Gauge corrugated roofing ... and found a suitable jpeg to print

I like the look of this better, once I add some debris, tyres, access ladder etc..... (and the ubiquitous "Fragile Roof" sign)  :)

The corrugated roof is an excellent addition, Andrew. Yes, some debris, tyres, access ladder etc., and the ubiquitous "Fragile Roof" sign will definitely add to the realism. I have some tasteful 1960s calendars in N Scale . . .

Thanks Chris, that would be good, will PM you to get the other scaled down pictures etc. that you used

Kit construction pretty much complete, though looking at it now, might have to think about how it would be illuminated.... might adapt the roof to have some sky lights or add some windows..... the Chief Exec may yet have something to say about the red doors as the garage manager acted alone in that decision ...
