STEP 3 (Plus Lighting)
Welcome to Step 3! (Willkommen!) So Step 3 is technically both easy and short, but this is sort of the 'last chance' to add lighting, so I'm going to tell you what I did to add lighting to this building.
Before we get too far off track, here is the original German instructions for Step 3:
3. Die weisse Bodenplatte Ec des 2.OG wird jetzt auf die Untersichtplate deckungsgleich gelegt unde leicht fixiert. Auch hier mussen die Kernöffnungen ubereinander.
Machine translated English:
Third The white bottom plate of the 2nd floor is now set Ec congruent to the soffit plate ande easily fixed. Again, the core holes must superimposed.
So basically what we're going to do here is start adding the floors, beginning with one of the two 'special' white, circular pieces that act as the bottom and top of all the floors - or as the instructions seem to describe them: the "Soffit Plates"
The below photo shows you what we're doing. The top piece (painted a light grey rather than the stock white) is resting on top of the ceiling section of the ground floor lobby that we attached in the last step.
Note the semi-circle holes in these sections which MUST line up!
What I also needed to figure out was how to wire this thing. There doesn't appear to be an easily accessible cavity for the wiring, so the only choice is to create my own holes in an area that won't be conspicuous.
Skynet" building as well); what I do is run two brass rods through the holes I drilled (see above) and therefore have a 'bus' of both positive and negative electricity running throughout the building. I don't know if this is safe or a potential fire hazard, so before you do anything stupid and follow my advice, you should check with an electrician that knows better than you or I.
This method is very convenient for soldering the wire leads from the LED strips on each floor without having to run a billion wires through each floor.
And that is a wrap of Step 3! Next...Step 4!
