Dinogas: TT Combat's Filling Station
I'd been looking forward to this weekend for a long time. It gave me my first opportunity to get on with some serious hobby time. And despite some humming and hawing, I knew what I wanted to do. I wanted to work on my modern city base boards. I had purchased these from TT Combat long before Christmas but had never had the time to make more than half of them.
And somewhere not long after that revelation, I discovered that finances were tighter than camel in the eye of the proverbial needle. So there was no likelihood of getting replacement glue or paint before next month's pay.
So I did what anyone else would do in a similar situation. Yes, I got a bit annoyed and frustrated. And then I grew up a bit and decided that if the proverbial mountain can't be moved, I'll simply go and do something different instead.

In case you're wondering, I'm deliberately painting the pieces before assembling them as it makes it much easier to get to the details. It's also much easier to paint the signs when the walls are lying flat.
I managed to start work on the petrol pumps too. They're the bits at the bottom of the next photo.
Btw, I forgot to mention that this kit retails for the astonishing cost of only £7.95 post free to the UK. They've just released a larger deluxe filling station for £14.95 which looks like this:
