I've kept my viewing 'balcony' model as part of the new palace diorama, adding a formal garden. Plenty of space for the King and his court to be posed outside. Below is a trial arrangement for the main entrance portico, using 5" plastic cake stands
I'll be constructing the diorama on a 6 foot by 9" shelf (recovered from an old model railroad shelf layout).
The internal rooms will be be built later, so far I have a short list:
- main entrance hall
- day room
and more as needed when the mood takes me.
