All:

I bought a kit off of eBay, the Pola 983 diesel tank. Bought it for the initial bid, well below retail. I got it as I thought I could use it for "fueling" the railbus.

I did not expect much from this kit. Boy, was I wrong!

The pump itself is quite detailed, and pre-colored, including the dispensing hardware and clear sights. Has a couple drums too.

The wood is distressed, typical Pola staining, and it should be a solid little model when done. Metal roof. VERY thick baseplate.

If anyone needs a fueling station for their railbus or small diesel stock in G, I would recommend this kit.

The question for me next is to find out if Shell had a presence in Czechoslovakia in the interwar period....

Now to find time to build it and several other Piko and Pola kits..... Very Happy

Hi Spud, looks a nice little rural kit.
Has anyone got any ideas about the best adhesive to use on these kits?
I have always used the Pola glue supplied, but suffer from parts falling off. I recently tripped over my Roundhouse engine shed and it disintegrated (at the glued joints) so I need to reassemble it, using a better adhesive, or some screws.

I have one of these. I'm using it on a it on a scale IIf modular layout. I'm removing the tank, and using the superstructure as a storage shed for a small feldbahn loco.

cheers,

That is an interesting idea Scot.

There is a Pola (now faller) kit in H0 that is used as a "handcar" shed.

The origins of the kit was Pola/Minitrains H0e engine shed...
