    Default Effective paints for muliple window buildings

    Several modellers have commented on how straight the paint job is on my multiple story DPM Woodland Scenics buildings.

    Here's an article by Chris Brimley that shows how to do it.

    Nice tip! I don't think that was a Lunde Studios kit though. Bob Lunde definitely designed it, but that was back when he worked for DPM. All the Lunde Studios buildings have separate window pieces. I only know this because I had a chance to meet Bob and visit with him back in February. He actually lives fairly close to me here in Arkansas.

    I know that this is true for kits produced recently, but older kits from DPM and Magnuson Models had molded in windows. I think the early Lunde kits had molded in windows but all the current kits have separate window pieces. Maybe Jugtown, Baro, Jimmi, or another veteran urban modeller (Bob?) can chime in if I'm correct.

    The kit shown in the article is Schwitter's Department Store, an older Lunde Studios kit. I found a photo on thegreatscaper's flickr page. Here's the link:
