Everyone can feel overwhelmed when they first begin this hobby. There's a blank 1:12th scale home looking back at you wanting to be built and turned into something spectacular, but where do you start? Most longer term enthusiasts would suggest that some time spent 'staring' at your new purchase will help inspire you, particularly if you don't have a complete vision of the final piece. Just time to sit and think and build what you want in your mind's eye first. Once you have an idea formed (don't panic, it's usual to have lots of ideas before you settle on a final choice), you'll need to plan the building, lighting and decorating stages.
