Thanks to everyone for all the kind comments and replies. 

This was a fun build but it sure took me quite a while to finish it.  Adding interiors and lighting added some extra time to the build but, in the end, I think it was worth the effort.   8)

Bob brought his Red Light District over this morning to show the Judge. The red light structures are absolutely stunning. I got Bob's permission to add these pictures to his thread.

Great work and the Red Light District.  Could you tell me what the footprint of the kit is, from side-walk to side-walk

Thanks again everyone for the kind comments and many thanks to Tom for posting the additional pictures.

John - I'd be glad to.  I'll try to remember to do so this weekend.  If I forget - don't be shy about reminding me.   :)
