If I modeled it, they would laugh

While researching my industrial building challenge model, I came across this thing right next door (50 Pearl Street, Trenton):



I figure if I modeled it faithfully, everyone would laugh. It simply looks too ridiculous to be believable.

no laughing here - we get lots of stucco over brick down south, and it all weathers like that.  Were I not otherwise engaged I could photograph dozens of buildings like that in an afternoon in the metro New Orleans area.

I'd love to see you do it.  Don't forget however that brick size matters!

I have wanted to try one of their kits but they are almost all too whimsical for me. Model the ordinary.

Best wishes, Dave
If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

I would think it would be a cool addition to a layout!  Go for it.

That would be cool to model.   It would blend in here in metro Detroit with the one exception you would have flaking bright yellow pain on the stucco and all the metal would be stripped off :facepalm:

Another popular thing to do in Michigan is to paint the brick.   :facepalm:

if I had a dollar for every instance something directly from the real world was called not prototypical...  :facepalm: that would make a interesting model. Do it!
