February Updates-New & Forgotten?
| We have so much going on it is really impossible to mention everything in even one or two Newsletters. Just in the Doctor Ben's and Scale Model Masterpieces Categories there are so 700 products in five scales and not all of them are listed yet!. Already we are working on some new and some *familiar* products coming out later this year.|
A little great news that we received a huge amount of "advise" in regards to choices of video editing software for uploading videos to you tube and our website. The learning curve isn't too steep so long as I don't try to get too fancy ... K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Silly) is my motto for now.I really do have a lot more things to be doing, but I can't be in two places at the same time unless the Quantum Physics Scientists can prove the theory of one person being at two places at the same time ... way to much science channel!
Also, one of our scale wood suppliers announced a significant decrease in the purchasing discount that it offers Hobby Resellers & Hobby Manufacturers. Details later in this Newsletter. So, all that said, let's move on to the New and possibly Forgotten! See you in the Hobby Room...
| "What's New & Forgotten?"|
| In case you not yet seen it, the Doctor Ben’s Scale Consortium Product Flyer 2019 is available and typically included in all the orders that we ship out every single day. Something new we are offering in 2019 is the opportunity for Customers to both download and print the 2019 Product Flyer in both pdf & jpg format. CLICK on the image at right to go to our website and find out about the plethora of Doctor Ben's products that we ship work wide! |
And not to be forgotten is the more informative Doctor Ben’s Scale Consortium 20119 Catalog which has a lot more Doctor Ben's product information than the Flyer.
|Two Stall Shortline/Industrial Engine House Kit UPDATE!|
Scale Model Masterpieces/YorkeHO/1:87
You may have missed this announcement last year. LASER cut trusses for this kit are the standard material replacing the Precision Cut trusses originally offered way back when. If you had ever built one of the 1980 versions, you may well remember that the trusses for both the HO & O scale kits were scratch built from a drawing.
Although we've received a lot of positive feedback from those with the original Precision Cut versions we just felt that building this kit would be a better modeling experience with the LASER cut trusses. I know that the LASER trusses adds a little cost, but the 1/16" thick bass plywood is a lot more stable when constructing the roof truss assembly--not impossible, but easier. If I can do it with my RA and AMD, I hope that others will be able to build this kit as well. Also, there is an option to NOT receive the LASER cut truss set and receive the Template Drawing to scratchbuild the trusses and save some money at the same time! Feel free to call for assistance ...
