Postage Rates Increase-Temperaturres Decrease!

  Did you go to the 2019 Amherst Railway Society Railroad Hobby Show last weekend? Lucky you! Heard it was a good one!
  Our weatherman said that 34 mid & eastern states we sub-freezing which means if you weren't out shoveling snow you may have been lucky enough to be in a nice, warm hobby room. Fortunately for many of us in NE Georgia our temperatures getting quite get there to get a layer of the white stuff on the ground  which means lot's of orders from the weekend went out as scheduled.

I have both structured assembled and I think that I'll be writing the instructions to assemble the walls and then Stain the Brickwork and details.I am going to do the bricks using Doctor Ben's Weathering Stains and the second building using Doctor Ben's Weathering Pigments. Both techniques will be following the Doctor Ben's How-To #2 and #3 booklet guidelines should you wish to follow along.

I suspect that i will need to use a video software (FREE) and I am asking for our customers to send us recommendations. If you have a moment we would greatly appreciate your input!You may send us an email to customer.service@debenllc.comor send us a CRM from our website!

What you pay is what we are charged unlike our Ebay Store where we do have to charge fees to cover the Seller Fees that Ebay Charges Sellers for the postage paid by the Buyer. WHEW! That's all for today. See you in the Hobby Room.

  The Grocery in O Scale is the first of this series with a bunch more to follow in both O Scale AND HO Scale. Above and at left is the "finished" Pilot Model images, where I finally found some spare time to finish applying the signs and adding the details that are included in this kit. If anyone is interested, this built-up model like some many other pilot models (still available) is For Sale. O Scale Grocery Foot Print: 3-1/8"wide x 5-1/16"" long. We'll bet that there are a few S/Sn3 Modeler who can adapt this kit to their scale, too!
