Here is an album of photos on a quick scene I made of the start of a city center main intersection, using these buildings. these buildings are all assembled and fully decorated except for signage, but there is a peel and stick set of self adhesive Japanese labels, but you could easily create your own on a printer and using self adhesive peel and stick labels if desired. These buildings though fully assembled can come apart as they are not locked or glued together, but there is nothing to stop you from gluing them together if desired. The base plate has a grove for a lighting wire to pass under the wall it you do not come from below. Rokuhan does have a building lighting system using two types of LEDs one in orange range to reflect incandescent lighting, and one in blue white to reflect fluorescent or halogen lighting. It is a modular system and connects to accessory socket on Rokuhan controllers. Each individual LED is wired and has a plug to plug into a junction board which has a socket to daisy chain other junction boards and to plug into necessary socket. All plug ans sockets are polarized so it is just plug and play the plus and minus are all taken care of.
Due to modular construction those who like to modify things to create their own building now have a set of building blocks to start with.

Kelley I think it is just the delay in getting there as they have just been released in Japan. They are not available in North America either yet. So far only in Japan at this point in time Hobby Search has them at least and they ship globally with a few exceptions.
I have ordered them directly in Japan, with Taxes and shipping about 14€ a building. They fit very good in an American Main Street. I have some pics at Z-Freunde-International, I will make some more later compared to American buildings.
Yes they are available in the US! We are receiving our shipments. The first box arrived with a number of the new buildings. We are awaiting the rest of the new building to come shortly. For some reason Fedex has held up the box in Memphis. They are available direct through our site, or through our authorized dealer network.
