After finishing my Winter Train Station I decided to build a Post office Posted Image .

A lovely fire place (There wont be a light brick in the fire, I'll be using one as a light instead)

With the Winter Toy Shop

C & C Welcome Posted Image

Very nice, I like and am confused by the fire place inside the post office.  The desk area looks really good.

Overall though, the design is great and it looks like a cute post office.

Hello!

The scene looks beautiful. Soon this time of the year is coming with the snow. :classic:

I have one minor suggestion. The top of the letterbox could need a white 1x2 snow plate as well. :classic:

Cheers,

Red Brick - I love the Winter Post Office. It looks great with your Winter Train Station and the Winter Toy Shop. Looks like all you need now is the Winter Bakery and a MOC Winter City Hall.

Love it, but I think you need to give the inside an actual floor instead of just using the white baseplate. I'm not syaing you need to get all snotty with tiles, but maybe a layer of brown, or whatever color you choose, plates would add a lot. Something akin to what Commander Laquiet did with his King's Grocer.

That's a completely amazing Winter MOC, The Red Brick! :oh:

I really  :wub: it!

It looks very realistic and there are a lot of small and lovely details included! :oh:
I personally like this your Winter MOC even much more than the Winter Train Station you built because your Winter Post Office looks much more official and much less "MOCish".
The only thing I miss in its interior is a frame with letters and packets.
Otherwise it's perfect!

Very, very well done! :thumbup: :thumbup:  

Btw: It would be great to see a Winter Candy Shop next. :wink:

Nicely done on this, it looks perfect next to the other Lego buildings! I can just envision a village of buildings like these under the Christmas tree with a nice holiday train....a beautiful sight! Well done, and I can't wait to see more! :classic: :thumbup:
