Silverlight 3D using Kit3D

I have been continuing my work on our campus plans website (Silverlight application)

For the display of the campus I have decides to move from the pseudo 3D version to an actual 3D plan.
I have chosen Kit3D by Mark Dawson

Here is the current result:

I have keys setup to navigate the 3D model, e.g. left arrow to rotate left

One issue this I am facing with Kit3D is that when I move the camera in closer to the "ground" some triangles/faces appear in front of the camera so you cannot see the models that should be in front of you.

An advantage of having the campus in 3d is the future ability to send the camera through the campus, between the buildings, to perhaps show how to get from one building to another, or just to show a virtual tour of the campus.

There are plenty of possibilities which is very exciting, and I'm really enjoying the task.
