|So many bright colors|
|Some decent textures|
Most of the buildings are glued or ultrasonic welded to the streets. The light blue parking structure was held on with screws, which made life easy. I don't recommend disassembling the glued buildings, they can be a pain, but they will come off with some bending and prying. (and some liberal swearing...)

You can see the texture on the purple building. The door looks really good scale-wise. I am curious what to do with the buildings. The purple one will make a good shed. The blue parking structure will make a decent raised platform for industrial or docks or something. The others can wait for now.
I picked these two to work on first, the blue platform required just some glue and paint to make useful. The purple shed needs a bit more effort. I cut around the door, to make it functional. I am using a simple card hinge (piece of card glued to the wall and the door so it can bend). I have some black corrugated card from scrap booking supplies that will work as a roll-up door. This leaves me with a bit of a quandary, do I cut off the roof (making it removable) and mount the rest of a floor, or do I leave it without a base or floor?
For now, I leave it without a floor. I can always cut the roof off later. Some paint and drybrushing is all it needs to be ready for the table.

I found some terracotta color Krylon spray paint for plastic at Walmart on clearance for $1.50. That made a great base coat for the brick. I'll be using that on more structures in the future. I will keep an eye for more of the city sets as well. They didn't cost much, and for a couple of hours work (including drying time) they make good quick buildings.

I do with the garage was larger, it is not big enough for a car. It will make a decent storage shed or add on for another building (like a maintenance shed) or a utility structure. I have a few more structures to work on, but I got the couple finished pretty quick and easy.
|Two structures done|
I'd have more done but the Walking Dead season finale is tonight, plus I managed a little more of the road scenario (I'll get the bat reps up soon). I'll share the other buildings as I work on them.
