James, I wonder why you built this from cardboard as that's not among your standard materials so far. I know that architectural modelling quite often uses good cardboard to build from , but are there any other reasons you used it or was it just at hand when you start? This material tends to warp easily when using plaster or a wet colour mix on it (which you didn't), but it's easy to work with on the other hand.

Thanks all  :)

I quite like the ease of being able to make the shapes and long walls slightly wonky, gives it a sense of realism  :)
