Another shot at a different angle, plus I lengthened the air hose, but there's a 3 week wait on another green fuel hose....looks like I have to cut another hose again ! :blush:

Great MOC! It has good detail and the stickers used work well. It looks just like the real service station.  :thumbup:
Very well done so far.  :classic:

The diner exterior might look a little like this......

Though the yellow/red/white trim will be the same though the whole structure.
Comments, suggestions, etc., always welcome......keep on watching ! :grin:

Sorry, mod's about the size but that is only picture I could find for any diner with a Shell roadhouse.

I love what you are doing with this Shell station, really looks like the right sort of thing for an outback/small town petrol station. A roadhouse style diner would be perfect. Don't forget to build a big rig truck to park at your Shell station (complete with trucker in the cab driving it)

Nice job on the ice coffee too (should put some more bottles in a fridge in your diner)
The food in your diner should be cheap, greasy and filling. Burgers, chips, steak sandwiches, pies, sausage rolls, coffee, bacon & egg sandwiches etc.

Thanks 'jonwil' for your feedback, I have started production of iced coffee containers and printed up stickers for meat pies too. :classic: I also have produced interior signage for said products.
Diner starts properly tomorrow......keep on commenting, watching & drinking iced coffee ! :grin:

You can see where the diner counter and food prep area is going, need another 8x16 base plate then I can make a drinks fridge and a new ice cream box. :classic:

Thanks again 'LCM'.....I look forward to your creations ! :grin:
I'm buy some extra 1x8 red tiles tomorrow to finish the red off, any other suggestions are still welcome. (Sadly I had to raid the pub and shopping centre for parts....so I must replace a bit  :blush: in the long run !)
Keep watching everyone ! :grin:

Looks great, LT.  I would definitely go with a logo above the door.  Maybe down the sides, not sure if that would get too busy looking.  Personally, I'm not sure about putting a hanging display between the fridge and counter.  Again, too busy?  Or maybe I'm not envisioning what you are, so...opinion -grain of salt and all  :classic:

Thanks 'drevim' for your feedback, I'll make correct sized stickers for the Coke fridge today.
Starting plan something else to go with this....maybe a shower/toilet block to begin the second driveway base plate....well it has to be long enough to fuel up a big rig !
Oh, yeah....I must make a big rig !
Keep on watching.....this servo is changing slowly into a truck stop or roadhouse ! :grin:

Fantastic service station, LT! I love the way you did the Shell sign, and the amount of detail in the diner/convenience store is amazing! I think you should add some 'Coca Cola' stickers to the fridge, and maybe you could add a little rack with some chips?

Anyways, keep up the great work, LT! :wink:
