Powerhouse For the PL&S

Photo of Jim Duffin's DPM Powerhouse

For the PL&S I wanted to build a larger version of this Powerhouse. To test the size of my plan Jack Zimmer helped me learn how to make a cardboard mockup.

I scanned the DPM parts of the kit on my printer scanner and used Photoshop to assemble a set of plans and then printed the walls in HO.

Jack brought cardboard and tape to my workshop.

Jack attached tape to the cardboard and then removed the backing of the tape.

He then carefully placed the prints of the kit parts on the tape.

After Jack showed me how to attach the tape and then the images to the tape and cutting out the structure's parts. We then used tape hold the walls together and placed it on the layout.
