Thanks Greg.  I haven't had the need to put too much thought into the lighting yet.  Nice thing about background flats, the interior is (for the most part) readily accessible after the build it complete.  I will need to solder leads tot a bunch of those itty bitsy LED's though for the exterior lights.   8)

Thanks Jim!  Even though it's a background flat it'll on the Summit (upper level) of Tom's layout so it'll be at eye level.  Well, my eye level anyway.   ;D
