Wouldn’t this review be more suited to Automodeler?

I placed it here as it is 1/35th scale and I believe will have the most appeal to diorama modellers

Also the same would apply to autos.
Any chance of uploading onto Automodeler as well?
Andy :slight_smile:

1/35th scale is a very rare scale in the auto modeller realm and of course we can no longer link

So are civilian subjects on an armour site :joy:.
Well you could just re-upload it to Automodeler, we could do with the content.

The early gravity fed gas pumps with a clear cylinder were called visible gas pumps.
This style gasoline dispenser used a hand operated pump to move gasoline from the storage tank into the visible cylinder at the top of the pump. Once the cylinder was full the customer would then place the gas nozzle into the tank of his automobile. A valve on the pump would then be opened to allow gravity to fed gasoline into the tank. The amount of gasoline dispensed into the tank would be measured by the amount removed from the cylinder.”
