Here's the balcony...
Here we an excellent example of what was known in the Cultae Draconis trade as a Flossing balcony.
Some of the bigger Dragon Training facilities such as Berk would have balconies at different heights to cater for growing dragons.

Dragon flossing was an arduous task as Dragon halitosis can be strong enough to take your eyebrows off. Flame retardant clothing and oils were essential part of a Dragon Herders arsenal.

You just had be careful when spearing those chunks of rotting flesh you don't want to stab a dragon in its gums!

Maybe use some epoxy putty (Green Stuff or Apoxie Sculpt) for a more permanent fix.
Yeah, was thinking of using GS. In the queue (somewhere) of pending projects.

Not too bad, but if you look at picture #1, it is a bit droopy on the left balcony.

EDIT - I should point out that it's not as bad as it looks. That's the 6" tower wall showing a bit of a gap due to the curvature of the wall itself.
Mine droop drastically, IMO due to poor design. I have to put a ~1/8" spacer to bring it vertical.

Interesting concept...I really must get my stuff painted so I can play around with the pieces. Have you had any issue with vertical alignment of balconies? Mine are all tilting forward, out from wall.
