Finishing Touches

 

All that is left is to put in the windows. You can use acatate for this. If you buy printer acatate you can print out glass dividers to make it look authentic.

 

You can also add rainwater pipes and hoppers which can be positioned to hide any joins.  Finally mount the building onto your board and use trees and vegetation to hide  any joins (eg the join between the building and the board).
