Thank you Philo.
While the US version (set 590) and almost all of later fire station sets (6382, 6385, 6389, 6571,... through today's 60215) have red buildings, this building is yellow and looks rather fresh for me. Smile

Thank you for your advice.
As this is my first work on LDraw, made about 4 years ago (recently OMRized and submitted to this forum), I haven't noticed the sticker parts.

I found some stickers in official library
* Fire emblem (for the vehicles)
* Firefighting wear (for the minifigs)
and one in parts tracker (currently unofficial)
* Clock (for the building)

Here is the updated version with official stickers.
Since the unofficial clock sticker uses a TEXMAP image, it cannot be included in a MPD file.
When the sticker is accepted as an official parts, the model will be updated.
Set: 377-1 - Shell Service Station

OMR Compliant: Yes

Known errors: noneMissing flexible parts (Strings for fuel hoses)

Done with: MLCad 3.51

For this set, all of stickers can be found in the official parts library.

(Updated in the reply: created flexible strings)
Set: 601-1 - Shell Filling Station

OMR Compliant: Yes

Known errors: Missing a part (x454pb01), Missing a flexible part(Strings for fuel hoses)

Done with: MLCad 3.51



Part x454pb01 (Road Sign Cantilever Curved with Shell Logo Print) is not available and I have used the closest part 764 as the alternative.

Looks like you have just found your next part project Big Grin

Unfortunately, the part will need to be (almost) newly authored as the pole is slanted, not upright (as part 764).

The part here seems to be bent due to aging degradation (?)

but the related part (only in difference of pattern) looks good.

Parts look similar enough so that a slanting transformation applied to the pole could do the trick... (see https://jc-tchang.philohome.com/manuel/prim_def.htm - in French, use translate Wink )

Thank you very much. I'll try it, but I have no real part of this and cannot measure the exact dimensions.
Is this allowed for LDraw parts library standard?

For such a part that doesn't interact with others it is not a major problem to eyeball dimensions from photos!

The best thing in this case is asking for photos, here an elsewhere, with standard bricks attached. See:
