I've been working on this model for quite awhile and still am less than halfway done, but here are a couple shots of some of the interior pieces posed against a scrap piece of matte board that is about the same color that the wall will be. Everything is scratchbuilt. In the first photo the posters above the cabinets are GIMPed in, but will be added when the interior is installed. The magazine rack on the far left is just posed in the photo. It will be on the opposite wall of the pharmacy, next to a soda fountain. You can click on the photos to enlarge them.

Volker, those are tiny gold colored metal "crimp beads" for spacing bigger beads apart on bracelets, necklaces, etc. I got them at a craft store. Because they are tiny hollow tubes, I glued styrene rod inside them to look something like a "cap" and to give a little more surface area for gluing the beads to the shelf.

Thank you , Russ. It's no Anders HO diorama (or others' level), but it's OK.

Here is the other side of the interior, not quite completely done in this old, but still most current photo.
Like Barney, the main pieces for the counter and cabinets behind the counter are Legos. The red seat covers are the "buttons" cut from a Lego block. (click photo to enlarge).

I like your understatement.

Bill: 
     You get 2 bonus points for using Legos in your build.  If you had used the full bricks you could have earned more points.

Volker, Here's the package for those gold colored beads you asked about.
I got them at an A.C. Moore craft store, but have seen the same in other places.
The item number is JFCT1G-0.75G/MZ
