MOC: Mitre 10 Hardware Store

Another day, another hardware store.

The building style is based on Federation era building (early 20th century) plus some inspiration from 2008 Town Plan. LEGO City has been missing humble retail stores of all sort, this particular model could made to serve in City or Modular ranges.

On display, there are painting accessories and lawn mower spares…..plus if you need a key cut there is a cutting machine by the front counter. The counter uses a 2×3 cupboard with a single drawer. There are also hardware fixtures and plumbing parts, including toilet seats on the gondola. Stickers applied to tiles would act as merchandise hanging on the wall like just like real merchandise hangs on peg board in a real hardware store. An updated image includes a paint tinting machine.

You could use the same blue and white for Mica in the U.K. or red and white for True Value in the U.S.A. – using also the correct coloured logos and merchandise stickers.
Also this could be made into a modular design if you wish as well.
