Looks like a good start on the base, I take it that the pins are just holding till the glue dries.

 ...I have a mock up of an oil dealer on the RR in the basement that is made from oatmeal boxes ...

oatmeal boxes and #10 tin cans were the "craftsman kits" of the '50s.

the "finescale" version encouraged the wrap of construction paper to lend the realistic effect.

not to sidetrack, but reinforce the value of imagination and executing things with common materials as being some of the core values of a true modeler, I reference this put up recently by my favorite blogger: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E._L._Moore

I enjoy this type of building as one section encourages further production, rather than having everything in an unfinished state thus retarding any incentive to get "over the hump".

great finishes and textures in one condensed area.

hi .
yes I have set pieces in mind I treat them as separate dioramas  and then combine them on the motherboard.one of the tricks is to make the motherboard neat and accurate so when you add the pieces there is a seamless fit-well that is the idear.also with these very small large-scale displays the more you can take off the better,  pack it  somewhere around the motherboard an example of this is the space over the backtrack will be used for the light valance.as for the lights, i have been collecting different styles of directional mini display LEDS I will give them a go.
anyway happy Christmas everybody and I hope that you get a bit of hobby stuff under the tree this Christmas.
cheers
