    Check this stuff out. It's a new line from Walthers that allows you to build your own unique buildings. Val, I'm sure you'll like this!

    These arent new --- they've been around for a few years. I have two kits -- and they are very cool.

    They look good. But Walthers is smart. Reading the parts lists for each assembly, you have to buy the pilisters, caps, roofs and foundations seperatly from the walls to make a complete building. Won't stop me from trying them.

    Tyson, the DPM parts are a bit big - the regular single width doors are 9 scale feet tall! Other than that they're pretty good I guess.

    Ed, I don't think you have to buy all that other stuff. Could be made out of sheet styrene just as easily - and would be a lot more custom.

    Val that suprises me. DPM doesn't have that problem in N-scale. Hmmmmmm, maybe you are in the wrong scale Val! :D :D :D
