Note the new additions, the mail boxes for people who live far away and don't have mail boxes.
The only thing left for this MOC is a new custom torso for the female postal worker.
Hardware and electrical store is next.....

WOW.

That panel work is fantastic. It's my favourite part by far...

Very nice clean build.

No Roof though?

Thanks 'riceracker', Australia Post liked it's earlier design late last year it was posted on their Twitter page.....got hundreds of hits on my MOCpages page for it.
Most buildings are getting their final touches and changes in the next two weeks, keep watching.
After New Mannum, another town theme starts. :wink:

Great MOC, it looks good and realistic and I too particularly like the way you have done the panels/stripes on the side of the building!  :thumbup:
Very well done.  :classic:

Thanks 'Buddy', actually hasn't anyone noticed something......it's still 75% of an earlier design posted last year, why again in it's form is because it's final....no more work to be done to it.

Thanks for the response's 'LT12V' and 'Asimo', the frontage is based on an old early 20th century post office in the far north South Australian town of Hallet. :wink:
My buildings don't get totalled, they form an important collection of mine for displaying like at the train show I was invited to earlier this year. :wink:
