Spring has Sprung! ... Sort of

  Happy first Day (or night) of Spring beginning at 5:58PM EDST. Last weekend was the first weekend that it didn't rain here in Central Georgia and it looks like this weekend will not only be dry, but also temperatures in the low 70's!
  Did you catch the brief note about the new look of our www.debenllc.com website? As we slowly begin the sale process and the transition of creating a Doctor Ben's website and a Scale Model Masterpieces website, we are getting some housekeeping done on our primary website. Lot's of folks are kind of nervous about our decision to sell but unlike the announcement from NWSL last week to close it's door the end of August, we're not closing our doors anytime soon. As long as both businesses continue to attract customers and generate income things are business as usual. It is my health issues that are driving our decision to sell our businesses expecting that new owners might take these successful businesses that we've created to the next level of both returning to Vendor attendance at conventions and hobby shows as well as ramp up the online videos needed that are so successful for today's thriving businesses.
  All that said, if you didn't have an opportunity to attend the Atlanta Model Train Show last weekend, I was told by multiple customers who did attend that the Show was a good one. Awesome! We've got a mix of Products & Techniques as well as lot's of other stuff in this Newsletter ... Hope that you find it useful in your modeling efforts! See you in the Hobby Room...
Tips & Techniques: Layering Doctor Ben's Weathering Stains

  One of the most popular Doctor Ben's Weathering Stains is the Rustic Barn Red (#1089). Also, one of the Doctor Ben's Weathering Stains that frightens some customers the most is the Rustic Barn Red. This is because when modelers see the Rustic Barn Red in the jar it looks to be a glowing red-pink color which is one of the last colors a modelers may want to see on their favorite structure or model. Sounds like a conundrum, right? CLICK on the image to read on ...
