New brick proportions look much, much better.

If these eventually get released in N Scale, I wonder how bad they will make the DPM kits look if used side by side.

I think the only thing that could make this kit more perfect is the addition of a row of windows along the front, between floors, which in the case of this structure would be behind the awning.

New brick proportions look much, much better.

Those are actually accurate N scale standard sized bricks (~8 x 4 x 2-1/2). I did it to prove we can master highly accurate N scale kits.
