I like that Gordon, especially the hardware. I also like the pedestrian door in the larger doors. Something I've done in real life quite a few times and would like to model. Judging from the middle drive pintel location on the right door and bolt holes in the door, it looks like the small door is an afterthought. The rusty leader lends a nice touch too.

Work is progressing but slowly.
Still pouring and casting.
Have also been working on the sub wall and cut-outs.



I'd show you more but someone put up an "employees only sign on the
temporary door I made to check sizes and proportions.
Sorry,
Marty
