An FYI, save $10 if ordered by today. Usual disclaimers apply.

Ordered mine last week.  I met Mr. Lunde at the N Scale convention in Milwaukee last year.  He designed all of the DPM kits as well as Magnuson kits (his wife's maiden name).  Our N scale cities and towns would be empty without his creations.
Best regards,

Roger

...He designed all of the DPM kits as well as Magnuson kits....

What ever happened to the Magnuson line. I read in Model Railroader that they were sold to another company, but that's all I know.


Hmm... I love a good
mystery...


Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.

I've long admired the Lunde Studio buildings.  I don't have need for them in my modelling, but they look fantastic built up.

I did not know about the DPM or Magnuson connections. He's done great stuff in all three lines but I wish it was less northwest and Midwest looking. A few of the shorter DPM buildings can be used down south, but not many and not without work.

I think Period Miniatures took over some Magnuson.

+1, they are so very well done. Finally someone who understands urban architecture...... too bad I don't need any :|

I've have Lunde's four other kits and will get this one as soon as I get a job. Looks very comparable to the Bachmann HO scale Ambassador Hotel kit. To bad I'll lose out on this sale.
And I've got the Bachmann HO Metropolitan that I'm converting to N scale. Working on doing some T-trak city modules.
