Hello, welcome to my YouTube Channel. I have produced several build video’s over the past several months with great response and so I have continued this adventure with the Design Preservation Models Townhouse #1.
Design Preservation Models (DPM) have been a staple in the Model Railroading industry for many years with their injection molded models. This model, the DPM Townhouse #1 is part of a Townhouse collection available in O, HO and N scale. There are at least 3 of these Townhouse kits I am aware of and I have built several of them. Design Preservation Models is a Division of Woodland Scenics, one of the the leaders in model railroad building tools, scenic items and many other Model Railroad related items.
This model build was mostly meant to share technique on the DPM construction and a really heavy weathering to indicate a worn building and show the answer to many questions. The intention is to use this in an area on the layout where the buildings and surroundings are not well kept and so the building itself is by all rights, just down right nasty. The DPM models are in my opinion one of the best models on the market for their realism. Design Preservation Models really did a lot of research in creating such great modeling kits.
A little about the weathering, this model and video was put together to answer many questions about weathering model railroad structures. The weathering is very heavy on this model, even the windows are not immune to some weathering powders. The model’s weathering is applied through many different techniques and I hope I have captured enough here to answer the many questions I have received.
I have to admit, this build was a bit rushed! and the normal time and care taken with some of the details was a bit below standard for me. I did however plan this build more so for weathering and the over all general construction, so, I hope the lack of detail on some of this build isn’t seen as normal model practices.
If you feel so inclined, please Subscribe and comment! I would greatly appreciate it, I do enjoy hearing the feedback positive or negative. Clicking that like button on my video’s also induces mass amounts of inspiration for more build video’s.
One of the most inpiring DPM build video’s on the web is by Miles Hale take a look at it here:
