Wiw! You've really stepped it up with this one. While I did like your initial style of building, these are just so much better! The realism is great, but it still has that LEGO-ish appearance. Very good MOC, I really do hope to see it at an expo.

Although what's the deal with pillars?

Thanks 'Zuloo' for your very kind words......the pillars will click on to the pavement along side of this base plate.
The pay phone is moving to the blank spot.
More tomorrow ! legohappy

You have been building up a storm (and don't sleep :P

The wall for this one is freaking awesome, it looks perfect for a post office, and placed into a display it looks brilliant.

Thank you 'AnitaE' for those kind comments, actually you are not the only one to notice......Australia Post did and it was Twitter'ed quite a bit late last year.
The only difference in the building now is some extra stickering just to fill the blank walls.....so much tan ! legolaugh
Brick On ! legohappy

Like many other of your MOC's this is another one I have admired from the start and have kept quiet over until now because I would like to know what your thoughts are about post office boxes.

It so happens I walked past a Post Office today and realised that your creation is slightly against the common trend of Australia Post !!!

This is absolutely brilliant and so true to the real thing. Could we please see more of this and also of that IGA you have built that we can get a glipse of in the background.
I love your attention to detail. Is that an Alarm on the side of the IGA building?

Thank you 'bradcoll' for your kind words, yes, that is a alarm strobe light outside the IGA, plus look under the new Mitre 10 & other shops topic of mine and you'll see some of these buildings. More to come so check all my topics you be surprised ! legohappy
