Well done.
We love ours and it has even made it into the living room. It is also backlit, not the expensive way, but with a simple led lighting kit and the bulbs placed at strategic points.

Lovely! Ours is in the living room too as it fits nicely on top of our kallax unit. Good idea with the lights I think well do similar, thanks.

Mine's still in the box, it's been sitting waiting for 3 years now to be built I just know how much dust will get on it if I have it on display... my Wall.E is covered, and I hate it when you take them apart and have to clean all the pieces before it goes back in the box

Thats why we have the cover from iDisplayIt over our castle. Fairly expensive but I knew Id want the castle out for a long time so figured its worth the cost.
This reminds me, my Wall-E really needs a clean!

Compressed air duster and a small 1/4" paint brush works wonders to clean of dust. That's what I use to clean my Star Wars lego sets including the Millennium Falcon.

I start off with good intentions and do that but leave it long enough and it doesnt always want to budge

The castle is particularly flimsy as they sacrificed strength and rigidity for accuracy. I am glad that mine is under glass. It is, however a fabulous model that gives me a great deal of pleasure when illuminated in the corner of my room.
