On the previous kit, the seams between the floors was fairly well camouflaged by the darker brick pattern. Unfortunately, that was not the case with the cream-colored bricks, so additional plastic trim had to be added to hide them.
As mentioned previously, the upper floors are shorter in height than the ground floor, with the attic level being too short to accommodate standing figures. This is a shame from a playability standpoint, but visually it still looks fine on the table.
A couple of shots of the finished building. The gaudy design was inspired by this Chinese medicine shop.
Looking at the finished project, I wish I had done a better job to hide the MDF joints on the sides of the bottom columns, but hopefully they will get lost when part of a larger table setup.
And here it is next to the first shop I built. The reduced height of the upper floor isn't so glaring, and as I look at it, a full-size floor might actually look proportionally off given the narrow width of the building. It also demonstrates how very similar kits can look vastly different by changing the trim elements and color schemes.
Lastly, I generated some new paper elements for this build that you can find below for your personal use.
