    Default Woodland Scenics "Pre-Fab Landmark Structures"

    I don't know how these slipped under my radar, but they're quite a deal. I only found out about them at all because I was Googling around looking for some old-timey gas pumps (to use at a gas station I'd scratchbuilt) and came across this "Sonny's Super Service" kit -



    It's the same model as the WS "Fill'er Up & Fix'er" prebuilt, except that nothing is painted and all of the details come uninstalled. And for a mere $18, you get enough handy details and graphics to make even George Sellios proud! Now I can detail the heck out of my gas station, pitch the Sonny's building, and still feel like I came out ahead

    Hang on, kids. The pumps are coming!

    There are some holes in the kit to place the details Mark , and the building itself is almost one piece except I think for the roof and some doors , windows .

    The Kits are good if you want to build that exact building or if you just want a bunch of detail parts. But other than that I don't find much of a kitbashing use for them.

    For sure it's just about the details for me. If I wanted that building I'd probably just spend the extra $$$'s and get the prebuilt. Those guys paint way better than I do.

    This is one of the WS "kits", if you can call it a kit, painting it yourself saves a lot of money. I have the gas station as well but no photo's, they are no fun at all to build but you do get a quick building.

    Very nice looking -- if you assemble things well you can sell on Ebay for $300+ (only kinda kidding -- this is a recurring theme in the "Ebay Again..." thread - these nicely detailed / finished buildings seem to regularly be selling for insane prices).

    I believe that @Janbouli likes the ”building” kits as you can see in his many fine build threads. With these there’s not much building involved other than painting.

    Exactly Ed , there is no building except adding the details and I believe the roof , but I'm not even sure about that.
