Looking great LT, Very nicely detailed as usual mate, I really like the fridge
what about if you put in a magazine stand under the front window, a snack aisle, or a Mr cool ice freezer and a Swap and Go gas cage out the front? They are at every servo/roadhouse we pass, we use them when going to our farm but we are moving onto the 100 lbs bottles this week..

Excellent MOC lightningtiger, it looks like a real service station both on the inside and on the outside. I particularly like the interior, it is detailed and realistic and the stickers used inside it work well.  :thumbup:
Extremely well done.  :classic:

Amazing, LightningTiger! Simply stunning!

I love the Shell color scheme, and you made it even better - the white floor just makes everything else shine.

As usual, there are so many details that's impossible not to spend a good time just looking for every little thing you put there. The interior of this station is just amazing - from the counter to the Coke fridge to the clock to the table and then you reach the pies... I was stunned when I saw those! The blue 'windows' just added so much detail to the overall snack place...

The stickers add another level entirely - while one can get the MOC by its colors and architecture, the stickers add such realism to the MOC that it really feels alive.

Outside there's a lot of space... What about a small parking lot space over the studs? Something simple, as befits a servive station. Just my two cents ;)

Thanks 'Artifex' for your kind comments  :classic: , and that stud look along the side of the Shell sign......Prime movers are very wide vehicles to park and fuel up at a roadhouse - the grey studs is basically gravel....the flat grey surface is highly compacted gravel or just standard road surface ! :wink:
More to come.....keep watching tomorrow ! :wink:

I decided to fill the gap in the front with still enough clearance for large trucks etc., to be fueled up.

Great progress LT!  :laugh:
I like the new Shell logo, fit perfectly in your MOC :thumbup:
The inner little bar is too nice to be real ...I mean I want it in my collection! :wub:
The mixed colors red white and yellow are fantastic! The red refrigerator is awesome!

I was sure you would be selling Vegamite behind the counter... :tongue:

Seriously, it looks great, LT.  Are you looking to add a garage off the side of this building?  Or is that more of a US deal, convenience  store and service station combo?

Thanks 'drevim' for your comments, Vegemite (no A in it :laugh: ) is sold in the IGA grocery store.....truckies only eat Vegemite when they visit their mother's ! :laugh:
No garage and it's more of a typical roadhouse diner service station......more to come shortly keep on watching ! :grin:

Thanks 'LEGO Train 12 Volts', even though I'm 43 I watch Channel V and MTV Hits a lot now days and the latest from Gaga is her finest work !
A split chiller unit, I'm assuming the red and black section on the rear of the servo.....air conditioning it is. No other ideas or suggestions for the roadhouse at the moment ? :wink:

Servo looks great, nice shower block.

Good to see you around. I was starting to wonder if you'd fallen off the planet, with being upside down in the down under.

Welcome Back, Happy Belated Birthday.

~LCM

P.S. My Servo is finished and psted and I just finished some MAJOR renovations to my Bank and Arcade that will go up sometime soon.

Another superb building  :thumbup:

The only problem is that for a garage in the UK the toilets are way too clean and shinny. It's given me an idea of what to do with all those cracked discoloured white bricks that I have

Great build lightningtiger! The detail is mindblowing! I'm also in the process of building myself a gas station, mainly based on old mate 6378 but with both Octan and Shell pumps/signs, it's looking a bit off though due to my bad colour choice.
