A big 'GAS' sign is to be made yet to go on top of the building.....keep watching ! legowink

Thanks now there's an idea......I'm considering building another hardware store plus a bank that would fit this build better.....oh, yeah I've done the sign too.....inspiration from the Palace Cinema.

Looks great, I can just see a retro café in this style with the new minifig waitress on roller skates.

I would have to go without the skates on her to be more period late 30's/early 40's......the hardware store is under way, but a diner might come after the bank. Thanks 'Ajax' for suggestion.
Keep watching !

Looking quite good. I have some of the parts from the lego petrol pump set from the early 1960's. This is very similar, amazing similar actually, considering the original set used cast pieces, similar to model train setups, rather than blocks.

Thanks 'Scott', you have some town plan sets from the 60's eh ?
Lucky you, now I've had to put a halt to this series so I can work on my Aussie country town again.
