I'm not an expert here, but I wouldn't use 'real rocks', you never know how heavy that thing will get, thus 'how easy it could fall to its death'...
Isn't it better to use 'spongerocks', they look the part, but weigh less.

And that top floor, fill there be 'shooting holes' cut out or something? because it lacks a bit detail.

For the ground level, I'd suggest a bit of grass, or flock maybe, with a gravel road going underneath the structure, and then leading to the ramp.

Just sharing my thoughts, otherwise it looks fine (it sounds stupid to add 'for a first time', so I won't put that here... whoops)

ok heres what i think

1st how high is it can a mini easally shoot over the wall?
2nd put some detail on the wall like support beams or something
3rd put some fencing on the walk way like a rail kinda thing.
4th make it look like a tank like shot through the wall so cut out a chunk of it and leave rubbal in and outside the building put some bullit holes more detail that should be it lol itll look good dude

Rubble and partially destroyed would be kind of nice.
