Dome Oil Co. History
This was one diorama I knew I had to capture in HO Scale the moment I saw it on the www.Shorpy .com website, which is devoted to Historical Archive Photographs and is a great resource for ideas and inspiration.
I only had the photograph to work with, but because of its high quality and resolution, I was able to zoom in and pick up a lot of details in the image and figure out proper scale.

Dome Oil Co. About
RSM is bringing this rare gem to you in the new Diamond Series! These will be a very limited number of small designs that will be available in both HO & 0 Scale. They will be just as rare as a dimond itself. Our first Diamond kit will be dome Oil Co., Takoma Park, in maryland in1921. A gritty diorama of the Petromleum age. A tanker car would arrive to fill the underground fuel storage tanks while sitting high above on a wodden trestle, and the vehicles would then be refueled with a gravity pump.
Initially, little more than a shack near a pump on a dirt lot. Bring yourself back to the time of when early stations provided basic services, such as lubrication and tire repair, sold oil and batteries. The building-type , which has become the cultural icon of the automobile age, is undoubtedly the gasoline (gas) station.
