Thanks for those kind words 'TDG', keeps the old tiger going....positive feedback does. :sweet:
I should have another baseplate set up in the next two days.....hopefully, to use that picnic area and council office I built the other week......then pub work starts. :wink:
Keep watching as always. :classic:

Okay, so that's a good question on OHS......Lego do something about it.....a modified construction helmet or something....worse if you are working in the mine ! :tongue:
Now that's a young lady with a flower in her hair that works at the supermarket.....look back carefully and you'll see her in earlier shots.

More tomorrow......a little bit more trimming plus moving that lamp to a more central position and then I can start on the final set of buildings......I think it will be the final set but with the old tiger you never know ? :laugh:
Keep watching......and waiting ! :wink:

Thanks 'soccerkid6' for your kind words :classic: and 'Alasdair' for your cheeky ones :wink: (those curtains are 15 years old......they are as tired as the rest of my marriage is at the moment :blush: :sadnew: ).
Wow, it's no city just a humble country town of say only a thousand or so people.....such picnic areas are common in many old Aussie country towns. Don't worry a pub is coming up next, than a train station and a cold storage depot to store produce from local farmers in.
Keep watching everyone ! :classic:

Thanks, it was a spur of the moment idea the inverted antenna to act as the exhaust stack.

Really looking forward to seeing a pub added to the town. Seems to be the only thing missing from an Australian main street. That picnic area is a neat addition, could also be a driver reviver stop for the tourists

Another question......should the train station (which comes after the pub) be similar in design period (late 19th century - Victorian era) ? :look:

Thanks, it's still a huge w-i-p, but I have added a chalkboard for advertising 'counter meals' on the far wall.....I hope two beer taps will be enough ! :laugh:
Tomorrow I'll have that blank window space fixed as well the holes in the floor....then I can think about roof/ceiling.....keep watching ! :wink:
