A little bit kitbashed "Sonny's Super Service - N Scale Kit" by Woodland Scenics.
Painted by my friend Jakob.

Garage is small enough, but it is possible to put small car (1938 German Opel Kadett/Soviet Moskvich 400) inside

Looks Good Arseny!
My friend owns a service station and the previous owner had the same problem. It was originally built in the 1930's, but by the late 1950's the cars were getting too big to fit! They had to tear down the original garage section and build a wider one that they still use today.

If you plan to use this kit (or some other N scale kits by Woodland Scenics) in TT, be careful.
Please, notice:

1. You are to enlarge the doors and maybe the windows.
While you can use the kits by Model Power without any modification or kitbashing, the kits by Woodland Scenics are "true N" and need enlargement.
Also, it would be better to lift the building up. Use a strip of "bricks" and put it under the walls, for example.

A good photo to understand what I am talking about:

2.All that stuff near the walls (motorbike, barrel, etc) are not simply glued. They are connected to the walls by pins, and there are a lot of holes on the walls for that pins.
So, if you do not want to use such a lot of details, you get some ugly holes in the walls of your building. In this case, you are to putty them.
