The lamps look really good - but what makes those pictures the real deal for me are the car headlights, they impress me every time.

I think the phone box has to be next ...

I meant it as rhetorical - I sometimes can't imagine how much better you can make your layout - but you always find something !

The joy's of LEDs are the low power consumption, it would take a lot of LED's to match the power usage of 1 Wheat of grain lamp. Also the LED's don't get hot like Wheat of Grains.
