The quality is poor. Scabs of plastic (not interfering with the excellent molded detail)to be cut and sanded away. Sides have to be squared up by block sanding. No molded guides to assist assembly. And Carol's Corner Cafe has no signs - no decals at all. Now how the heck is this a cafe with no sign? If this is a sample of DPM kits, I will avoid them in the future.

"Carol's Cafe aka Pulman's Place."
I built this model in an afternoon. Good model, and easy to put together. But you need to be careful cutting out the roof. There is enough styrene for a second try if you first try doesn't work out. I modeled it after a restaurant two of my grand kids worked at. Fun kit! Very versatile, can be a book store or a restaurant, or even a general store.

"Carol's Cafe? how can you tell?"

This Building like all Landmark structures have some nice architectural detail, but lack window treatments, decals and a sign to finish the building and let you know this is the Building that the Label says it is. Some sides requiring squaring to assemble. The instructions recommend sanding, but I found it easier to use a small Modeling plane to trim the sides by taking light passes until I get a shaving the complete width of the side. Although, sanding may be easier if you are not familiar with using hand planes it will certainly take a lot longer. The roof has supports that have to be trimmed to length and are not long enough for all sides,so you have to put small pieces on each side (would it have hurt them to add enough support strips)? The Roof itself has to be cut from a sheet is white styrene they supply. There is some nice architectural detail, but unless you paint it to bring up that detail it would be difficult to see if the structure is more than 18 from the front of the layout. The Kit would have earned a 4 star rating if they would have added some signage or something to say it is Carol's Corner Cafe.

Didn't come with any decals for the windows, kind of disappointed. The walls fit together okay. No floor or sidewalk, I had to come up with my own. I suppose if you wanted to add the interior of a diner this would be perfect for that perpous
