What are the "concrete" parts?  Basswood?  How do you finish them to get that great concrete look?

Beautiful work, Eric. Your precision with the templates and brick material is evident.  This looks to be an epic scratchbuild that will raise the bar for all of us.

Great looking project Eric   Reminds me of when we had the EXPO in Scranton. Wondering if we’ll ever see those days again. Jim

Thank you for your comment Dave, Jerry, Bob, Opa Georges, Janbouli, Bernd, Jim and Karl.

Dave. No special thing about the «concrete» part. It's juste .300" Cardboard from  pieces found in the Northeastern scale model package of paper «Corrugated metal»
no color added. I think the concret effect is due to the light (incadescent bulb) and the natural color of the brich basswood part.

Looking great, Eric!

Did you scratch build the windows as well?

Cheers, Mark.

Eric,

This is an interesting project. And no doubt it will be interesting to watch.
I have some of the Monster Modelworks brick sheets and I like the way you
utilized them as brick over brick to achieve the desired effect. Nice job
on the bay windows too.

Hey Jim, that's an idea but…. I never participate an expo (Yes I Know, it's a shame… but my poor English don't me permit to assist to a clinic or so) and I never travel to Scranton.
So the  famous Hot dog place is a big mystery for me. May be have you a pictures, an adress or a Name?

Eric
