I like the building. I could definitely picture this somewhere in
cities, and you have done a great job on the scratchbuilding.
prefer the look of your "decaying yet not neglected area of town" to
somebody here called the Stalingrad 1942 look.
I especially think the bench, trash cans, fire alarm, lamp, and mail
as well as the patched street, add a lot to your scene. I really like
sign on the pole and 'flattened cartons' in the gutter. Since the
sweeper hasn't gone by with his broom lately (hence the cartons) how
about a bit of small trash - leaves, paper wads, weeds, newspapers-
to dress the gutter up a bit further?
And of course a bunch of little shoe or small business-related ads
would dress up the windows very well, as would the usual "Get
Longer Wear through SHOE REPAIR" signs that seem to be such
a fixture of these places.
The gap between building and walk is somewhat distracting, but judging
from the other pictures the building's not quite 'fixed in place' yet.
fillet radius between the curb and road would probably look a bit
as a sharp corner, and a storm-sewer drain near the corner would look
very nice. Not sure how to make one - plastic diesel shell grilles?
I shouldn't pick at things like that, though. It's a really nice
neither overly pristine nor overly ruinous.
