Real or Fake?

The Wharf at Mooloolaba was cleverly detailed in the latter part of last century, with all sorts of "character" additions to make up for it's lack of real patina.

The "crane" for instance is completely fake, and while the faded colours were originally a little less faded, they were chosen to evoke a feeling of age.

How terrific is it therefore, that now the complex is of an age where genuine distress can be seen.  See the disused sign for instance, pleasantly rusting away, this is not fake!   There is no necessity to do any maintenance on the buildings, this is how they were supposed to look!
