What happened to this mould Dapol don't seem to produce it anymore but there is nowhere on line saying mould was destroyed or retired . The 2 buildings used common parts with different frontage

I wouldn't assume that they were Airfix originals.

If they don't appear in our Airfix History, they weren't Airfix :wink:

Are you referring to Dapol CO32 'Petrol Station'? Still being marketed by Dapol: http://dapol.co.uk/index.php?route=prod ... uct_id=565

I know the model you mean,I bought the "Supermarket" version 3 years ago.I googled the name and found a website selling one,when I first heard of the model kit.The one I got was cream coloured plastic with green guttering etc and green shelving isles (maybe wrong as it has been in the attic since I bought it).
