Supplying lube and fuel products as well as tools, irrigation and fencing materials to the rural sector

It's great!

Bur the stickers on the pumps have rather a Shell than an Octan colour scheme. It sticks out a bit. Maybe you want to change that.

And as I saw the telephone I somehow had to think of a toilet attached to the store where travellers can do what they have to do. :wink:

Thanks for the comments and suggestions.....yes 'jonwil' I'm planning a diesel pump and an outside loo...eh, yeah I'll think about......could always say go behind a tree ! :rofl:

I'll update a.s.a.p. with the diesel pump shots once it's done......keep watching ! :wink:

Edit - oh, by the way I will be building a NEW Shell roadhouse in the near future and it will use this four hose pump/bowser design. :classic:

For me, as all of your creations, this looks very nice. I like how you used the fence part for holding the tools.

Thanks, I agree it's a great way of combining more than one sub-theme together......a gas stations, hardware-ish store, pay phone, post box, it will grow from that ! :classic:

Keep you know looking ! :wink:

Fantastic station :thumbup: :thumbup:

I really like how you fit all the things, as shovels, in this small house, and the pump with sticker too. Ultimately I like a lot all of this MOC :grin_wub: :grin_wub:

I like the fire extinguisher and how the pump is made using the bracket :thumbup:

Only one suggestion: in the shop there should be a pretty woman at the checkout :grin_wub:
