Not sure if there's a huge difference between the 95' kit and the re-release but I figured the model would be less difficult and look nicer had I glued the doors shut. I'm sure that with a lot of work you could get them to look nice but I really wanted to actually finish a kit instead of doing half of it, getting tired of it and then shelving it like I usually do. Other than that the kit went together well.
Picture frame with the glass and stuff taken out, some dollar store foam board (the curb is made from the foam board as well), cheap acrylic paint, and some fake grass stuff I also found at the dollar store.
Sorry it took me so long to answer your question I've been on a model hiatus for awhile now.
