    Default Main Street Mercantile Build

    Here is my latest build. I really do like DPM models. This one came with the 4 walls and roof already assembled. The painting on this one was very unique. I tried some different techniques with the paint and details. Barber pole is hand wrapped, main light is a glass bead to replace the plastic details. Anyway, I pretty pleased with the results.

    Looks good Olie, Well done!

    If it's a good idea, go ahead and do it. It is much easier to apologize than it is to get permission.

    Olie, excellent job. Agree with all that DPM kits are fun to work with and the small detail parts, signage, etc. really set them off. I have a total of 23 DPM kits in various stages from complete to still in the bag. Trying to make them fit on my layout space will be a challenge! I may have to just use the fronts on some of them (or cut them in half) and have them along the backdrop.

    Those Lunde Studios kits look amazing. I wish I had a layout big enough for their buildings. I can only image.....
