But first the rest of what I found in TRU.

I will be unboxing the Texaco Gas Station. If any of you are not aware, Greenlight came up with some these building which can be used in your diorama or photo shoot.

As you can see it came in a window box and I love the packaging as it is simple to open and it came with a soft all around transparent plastic container. I just lift the plastic cover and the gas station can easily be removed.

It is almost fully assembled as there are a couple of parts that needed to be assembled.

Most of the material is made of plastic but the 2 garage doors are made of metal which can be opened.

The base is a bit small as the Winnebago does not fully fit in it.

The regular size truck or car would fit well but still tight in space.

Here a regular size truck fit just fine.

Pretty nice area to photograph. Also GL included a little oil stain. Of course the reason why I was able to photograph on the side is GL left it opened with a separate wall which you can install.

Here I placed the truck just enough for the garage door to close and barely enough room for the mechanic.

Here is the fully assembled gas station. What, how come only 1/3 of a roof? Yes this is a bummer for me as Greenlight did not include a roof for the garage part. My though is they did this to give a natural light when photographing the garage with your car. I just wish Greenlight gave us the option to put on the roof as well. By the way the roof is made of metal. This is a good price point for a diorama and if GL decides to sell the roof as an optional accessory I will definitely get it.
