    I was so impressed with the work done by Ken ) it motivated me to get on with the DPM kits I had. The one thing was I didn't want to end up with the stock building I too was going to kitbash the kits I have as well. I'm not sure I'm going to end up with anything as nice as Ken did but I'm sure having fun at it.
    I just started on this so I'm not far along but I did get some work done this weekend and I wanted to get it posted so I can get feedback to see if I'm on the right track. I'm looking to convert this townhouse model (DPM Townhouse 3) into a city commercial building.

    Comments always welcome.

    I like what you did with the lower level as well as ditching the shutters & adding the detail on the front. What your going to end up with is one of those projects people look at & say where did you get that one. What a scratch builder loves to say is you don't get that you have to make that.
    Make sure you keep us posted. Great job.:thumb:

    Very nice, I especially like the below the sidewalk level, that kind of thing you never see in a commercially available building, and will help make a whole scene unique.

    Part of my preparation for the Thanksgiving festivities, with returning children, visiting in laws and friends (besides trying to tie up the loose ends of getting a 70 year old bathroom rebuilt on the back porch of a 130 year old house) is to clean up the table in my family room that I use for a workbench. Right now it is so piled up with deterius form several projects that it is impossible for me to work there, so I am hoping to return to some kind of modeling productivity very soon, perhaps as soon as Thursday in between basting and other chores involved with all day cooking.

    I'm now building a NMRA standard module for a local modular group. I've joined the NMRA and with that I'm now a member of the local modular group so I started a module for that. I'll post some of that when I get photos.
