This is a simple MOC, but building a minifigure-scale soda machine with lettering turned out to be a fun challenge.

Seeing Ricecracker in here, made me felt that this is more appropriate in our town forum.  :wink:

Nice simple MOC, a pretty good way to add these onto the streets pavement.

Looks nice. I would make the word sign a stud lower, though to make it equal.

I've done a lot of Mafia games over the years. Somehow, I haven't improved at all.

Tempting. I'm trying to cut down a bit on this stuff, but that red and white sign reminds me of the lovely taste :) thankfully, there's nothing in my fridge...

Nice MOC and yes it does make me want a Cola right now :)
Thankfully the nearest place to get one is a long walk away and I am too hungry (and too busy sorting this massive pile of unsorted LEGO) to go get one :)

Very nice MOC. Maybe one thing you could do to improve it, is to put a metallic grey 1x1 round plate on the can in stead of a white one.  :thumbup:

In case you don't know, EB site guidelines state that posted images should be no larger than a size of 800x600.  Please remember this for the future.

I really like this - Tempted to make a version for my town - It would make a great addition to a modular - well done.

Very nice Coke machine! I love the lettering, especially because it's on a small scale. Great job!  :thumbup:

Thanks everyone!  I've worked briefly on a version 2.0 of this that has an even cleaner rectangular shape, but it's difficult to do without the size increasing a noticeable amount.  It is easy to do without the lettering, but the lettering was the whole point.

Phred, I missed that about the image sizes but will make sure I'm following the rules in the future.
