Shell Gas Station

You might be wondering to yourself - Tim, you silly billy, why did you build a gas station out of LEGO? Well, I'll tell you. A few weeks ago, I drove by a brand-new Shell gas station and I saw a part of the roof that I knew could be recreated perfectly with LEGO bricks. Once it was in my head, I couldn't let it go. Fast-forward a week later, and I had completed my own minifigure scale gas station, complete with Shell decals, 4 gas pumps, food mart and car wash, classic ice machine, air pump, propane tanks, and much more.

But back to the original question, why spend time and effort building a gas station out of LEGO bricks? Quite simply, I love seeing something from our world recreated accurately and beautifully in LEGO, whether it's the architecture or a simple gas station. LEGO bricks are a wonderful art form, and I am passionate about building and using them well, so no matter what I build, I know I'll be proud of it. Hence, I present to you this Shell gas station. I think it would be an elite edition to any modular town.
