This build is a Neo Fabuland post office.

My current project is a large display that I plan to exhibit next year exploring something I am calling ‘Neo Fabuland’, the idea of employing Fabuland as a visual style, in much the same way that Neo-Classic Space looks to Classic Space as a set of design conventions. You can find out more about my goals for Neo Fabuland here if you are interested.

I have several builds for this display in progress and this is the second one that I am revealing.

First and foremost I wanted to take the level of detail up above the simplified forms of the original Fabuland sets (those sets were made for young builders after all). Unlike my first build, Edward’s Fishing Hut, this build is not based on an original Fabuland set but it does incorporate several elements recognisable to Fabuland aficionados, namely the bay window from the original Fabuland general store/post office (Set 3675) and all the elements the original Boris Bulldog the Postman set (3603).

It includes my take on Neo Fabuland windows, namely brick-built windows with vinyl cut sticker pane details mimicking the style of Fabuland windows.

Let me know what you think!
