Good stuff LT! Loving the iced coffee. Is that a rare brick or one of your decals?

C&C...

- The air hose is absolutely brilliant. I was thinking it was a crap fuel bowser and was thinking about how to politely let you know my thoughts when I read the big "AIR" and realised that it was actually genius. Looks just like the one at the petrol station down the road from my place.
- I'm thinking the whole structure seems a bit tall. I know there are service stations that do have really high structures like that, but in your town of fairly low buildings, I'm concerned it might look a little out of place. If you were to reduce the height by 5 bricks or so, I'm sure most LEGO cars would still fit under with plenty of headroom, and it might fit into New Mannum a little better.
Just my two cents. As with your others, this MOC is really neat and I'm glad you posted it for us. legohappy

This is shaping up very well. I like the way you get the proportions right for the various equipment you moc up. I love the use of the window for the overhead menu.

Always love your decals.

This is awesome! I agree, i think a small restroom area/toilet would really set this off. Great work!

Do you keep all these set up as a town, or just build them and pull them apart again? You did have some pictures of the town a while back, just wondering if its growing or just re-designed.
