Nice one, captures the style of a few of those older sets whilst looking a bit more modern.

I wonder however if the roof canopy needs to be so high.

:classic: :classic:

Thanks 'jonwil', 'ice brick', 'MSC94' and again 'AJ' for your kind comments etc.,. :sweet:
Ah, 'jonwil' could you tell where I got the Shell stickering from.....copy & paste from BL ! :laugh:
Hopefully later on I can give you all a better look at this creation of mine, only a custom figure and fuel hose short at the moment.....keep on commenting.....keep on watching ! :grin:

Quick edit, 'AJ' spoke about the roof height.....compare this one to door ways and bowsers.

I like it! It looks like a Classic Town set-- simple but effective.

Nice board choice, as well. Was that originally found in a gas station set?

Nice one LT!  :thumbup:  I like the raised canopy, it makes sense, since there are a lot of trucks or even huge tour buses that need to top up after a long trip in the outback. Do you have the actual pic?
I'm having a nervous brick-down...

Thanks 'Studs Not On Top' and 'Out of Sight' for your kind words, actually this is a fusion design of real life and classic Legotown sets. The stickering comes from the 1999 Shell promo gas pumps and Select shop. :wink:
Hopefully, I can get good shots of the interior of the shop tomorrow - keep on watching ! :grin:

Another fine job, LT!!!  You have truly came into your own, doing the modern-classic Lego designs.  Will be on the lookout for the interior updates.

Thanks 'drevim' and 'LEGO Train 12 Volts' for your kind comments, today yes, more photos (sad to say they might be the camera in my phone ones though....sorry :blush: ).
I have to come up with a custom figure as well today, but it's at least 95% finished.
Keep on watching for the update. :grin:

Great start 'lt'. I prefer Shell over any other gas station, myself. Great idea for the gas pump poles. Looking forward to the next update Posted Image

I should be picking up that hose today and if I can get hold of the Cybershot I can shoot better pictures. :wink:
