Shrine of The Aquila

I have assembled my Warhammer 40,000 Shrine of The Aquila terrain kit. I think it turned out pretty well. After assembling it I attached it to a base. You'll want to make sure the pieces are sitting on a completely flat surface when you glue them together, otherwise they'll end up crooked and not sit flat on the base. I glued some leftover pieces, cut up sprue, and small ballast to the base as rubble.

I basecoated the whole thing in black, and then sprayed a coat of grey, trying not to completely cover everything so that a little of the black showed through. This gives it a bit of a textured look. Here are some pictures.
Having never painted a building before, I'm now realizing that I have no idea of how to go about it. Does anyone out there have any suggestions? Should I get a really big brush and a bigthing of light grey paint and give the whole thing a dry brush? Should I make all the beams, rivets, and floor pieces a metallic color, or leave them grey? I'll do the details like the lamps and tubing at the end, but I'm not sure where to begin.
