Default Wall hung room box

Found a room box in Hobbycraft a little while ago, it's one that hangs on a wall. Ideal I thought, as it would be out of harms way when finished. I am slowly deciding what it will contain, but I generally just go with the flow as ideas form. I can't see this as a quick project for me as I dabble in other hobbies at the same time. So far I have built a false front wall from grey board, as I intend to add a backscene that will be illuminated and seen through the windows and door. The scale is by eye and will be very roughly 1/24th, due to the dimensions of the box. I have cut a thin plywood panel for the front, which will be split in the middle to form two hinged doors.

Just a little update as this is slow going, because I just love other hobbies and unfinished projects :0)
So far I have added a back scene to view through the back board. Not that much will be seen once the door and windows have been filled in. But it adds some more interest. I have also added some tiny white LEDs to simulate daylight, for which the battery box has been double side taped to the underside of the box. I put some gold reflective tape behind the LED's to help reflect more light on the backscene.
