creating workspace for have a place to rest their heads!
This was a tough build though...a lot harder than I thought. It was actually complicated by the fact that Aoshima did a great job with this kit. There are plastic 'insert's for each floor of the building, which makes it very convenient to add lighting and details. This sort of convenience works well if you go with the standard 5 story building, but I ordered 2 of these kits (each box contains two buildings) resulting in a 20 story monster!
I basically followed the instructions, and attempted to think a few steps ahead of the instruction's sequence to accommodate the fact that I was adding 4 buildings together. The stairway is first, and its something I felt needed a few lights. Hey, if someone's going to climb 20 floors of stairs to get to their apartment, the least I can do is give the an occasional light! These are simple SMD LED's that went into a few somewhat random areas of the stairwell.
caulk to fill in the gaps, and then covered the caulk with Model Master's Camouflage Grey, which was a decent match for the stock color of the building.
The lighting turned out how I wanted it to, however, just enough light to give the indication that some folks are at home, and others are dark, just like reality.
