Below Average February Weather Temps!

  Yes, that's what our local weather person just announced for February's expected temperatures--Below Average! YIKES! Our early morning temperatures here in NE Georgia have been in the low to mid-20s off and on for the past few days.
  That said, my New Year Resolution is to upload each weekly (or so) Blog by the following week. Over the past year we have receive multiple inquiries from Customers asking about one Newsletter or another and uploading the weekly Blog will save time for both the Customer and me having to track down a specific Blog.
  We've been really busy filling orders this week and I found some time to finish the Pilot Model Structures for the Feed Store & Annex Set Kit. These two structures have never been offered as a set, so this set may be just for a limited time. You still have some time to order the set using the Waiting List link to get Free Shipping (CLICK either image). I'm not certain how long we'll leave this as a set but eventually the structures will only be available individually.
  The image above right is a model of this Feed Store & Annex complexand I am sorry to say that I have lost his name to give him credit. If you know this person PLEASE send us his name so that I may credit him with the build. FYI Our plan is to offer this kit with platforms and loading dock as you see in this image as well as a water tank in the roof and lots & lots of Stack 'o Sacks, boxes, barrels, etc! Stay tuned for more updates!
Industrial Engine House Cyclone Power Vent Kits HO & O Scale
   We've receive inquiries about our Two Stall Shortline/Industrial Engine House Kit and modelers interested in the availability of the Industrial Engine House Cyclone Power Vent Kits that adorn the roof of this facility. The Vent kits are a 2-piece casting (Labstone) which is extremely easy to stain & weather and very reasonably prices compared to similar kits by other vendors.Watch for the O Scale Vent kits to become available soon as well as the HO Lean-To kits (both short and long). The HO & O Scale Lean-To (short) is also available separately.

  When I first began building Fine Scale Miniatures kits  (manufactured by George Sellios) many years ago, the part that I enjoyed the most was the weathering. Nothing irked me more than to build a model in a brand new, pristine condition. I began looking for something more that what the FSM instructions offered. Don't get me wrong, I owe a great deal of what I learned about building models from building early Thomas A. Yorke kits, Model Masterpieces kits, Builders in Scale kits, Timberline kits; heck, there's even a thing or two to learn from building the Campbell kits.  CLICK HERE or image at right for more information ...
