Hi....I did try to do the motel with this model as I said a few months ago, but it was coming out a diorama of about 36"x40" with the parking area, but it is to big to handle. So I decided to use the plastic base that comes with the model and add a foamboard base to do the small hill. I also use the old method of tissue and dope covering used for free flight balsa airplanes. I painted the area and used dry weeds to do the trees.....Barbo

I really like the effect of the LED, but here's a small suggestion: Block out a few of the windows in a room or two
that might not have the lights on. It's rare that ALL the lights in a house would be on at the same time. Just a thought......

Great job so far. Love the weathering on the building and the figure in the window.
