MOC - Lego Rural Traders

Post by Lightningtiger on Fri 12 Oct 2012, 2:48 pm

Taking a little break from New Mannum for a few days so I'm working a pure Lego City style MOC to join my small Octan service station MOC.
This is a w-i-p.....need some more parts to complete the roof section.

More to come....keep watching ! legohappy

Thanks for the comment and try Toy Corner in Adelaide for those parts - door pieces around 2 bucks and 6x5 panels between 3 to 4 dollars.

Is there a part number for those windows Lightning? I can't help but wonder if a shop on BL might be cheaper? Although I'm guessing you've most likely explored those options

Okay thanks for this info I just ordered 58 of these clear panels @ 55c a piece from Chromebricks. Ordered a heap of roof tiles and doors etc etc as well. The total package comes to 900g and 11eu for shipping. Seemed like an alright deal I thought.

I'm planning to make a few buildings (I bought heaps of doors and walling bricks also, as well as a lot of 10x6 grey plates for station platforms) I want to make a variety of simple-ish type nice looking building to accommodate the railway. I say simple-ish because they wont be anywhere near your level of quality or intricacy. I am a huge fan of big glass panels on buildings hence I bought so many to keep my options open lol. Also bought a ton of black roofing.

Btw I really love your post office it looks cool, are you selling any copies of these Lightning? The mitre 10 is cool also (the whole streetscape looks awesome just I like the colours of these particular shops really lol) BTW how on earth do you get all those stickers???

Thanks and I glad you like my work.....the stickers are hard work, photo sticker paper from Officeworks and a lot of MS paint work. legowink
The post office is up on Cuusoo and the original version was Twitted by Australia Post a few years back. legowink

Now back on to this project.....

Found your post office just now on Cuusoo and it deserves a lot more support in my opinion! While I was there (it's actually my first time to see Cuusoo) I found someone making a Macross/Robotech Lego ! Anyone else remember that cartoon?
(sry for interrupting the thread here lightning i'll be quiet now ^^;;; )

It was 3am when I saw Cuusoo so was too tired to join up but just did now and supported all your projects. Left comments on many as well lego:3 Maybe add a few flags outside the building on the ground?

Sounds like a plan, it would add flavor to the outer building area perhaps
