    Default DPM hardware store thread

    Since winter doesnt seem to be going away, ( we're expecting more snow tomorrow) im going to start a new build. After browsing some real world imagery for brick hardware stores i decided i have the right materials to give it a try.

    Cool! I will certainly follow this one!

    A couple of years ago I bought about a dozen assorted packages of DPM Modular stuff. I don't know whether I am missing the obvious or what but every time I lay it all out on the work table I have not a clue where to begin making anything out of it, I always end up putting it back on the shelf and building another paper/styrene/cardboard structure from scratch, mostly just because it is what's familiar to me. But, some day, I swear, I am going to build something using the DPM stuff.

    Can't wait to see what you do with this.

    Somewhere in the archives of this site, I had posted a DPM build for a granite mill that was located in the corner of the old layout, with the intention of a backdrop, etc.... you can actually see pieces of it in the first post.
