Is Black Friday Coming Early?

  It certainly sounds like it. Many of the Big Box Stores have already run TV ads trying to get the jump on each other. Not certain if we'll jump into the early sales ... guess that we'll see what our Customers think!
  We received a distraught email this past week accusing us of trying to steal a person's business away from another Hobby Manufacturer. What the customer did not realize was that the product in question happens to be one of our Doctor Ben's Products (Corrugated Roofing Material) and we quickly apologized to the person for the confusion. What the person did not understand is that the Hobby Manufacturer also happens to be a Doctor Ben's Reseller. The Customer who also also happens to be a Doctor Ben's Customer apologized for yelling at us when he realized the misunderstanding. This happens sometimes especially when the Reseller doesn't state on the website that the product for sale is a Doctor Ben's products. Not a big deal and for the record it just so happens that we have quite a few Doctor Ben's (and Scale Model Masterpieces) Resellers and some of these Resellers happen to be Manufacturers who use (and sell) Doctor Ben's products as a component in their kits. The confusion sometimes comes up when the manufacturer offers Doctor Ben's Products on their website but does not state that it is a Doctor Ben's Product!  Lesson learned.
  Anyway, we hope that you stay toasty warm this week ... we woke up to 20 degrees this morning. See you in the Hobby Room ...

G-Street Warehouse Kit Release

by Thomas A. Yorke Enterprises/Scale Model Masterpieces New Release HO/HOn3/HOn30/1;87

Footprint: HO-Scale 96' x 40' (5-1/4" x 8-1/4" + Dock Space)

 This impressive structure was based on one still standing in San Bernardino, California. The original cast concrete structure was built around 1920, but it has seen some changes over the years and our rendition incorporates these. Our patterns reflected the uneven and rough wooden form board impressions as well as "oozing" concrete from between them so typical of cast concrete structures.

Special Addition to Doctor Ben's Weathering Stain Sets!
  We have made an addition to each of the four (4) Doctor Ben's "Weathering Stain Sets". In each set we are including one of our brand new Scale Model Masterpieces "Junk Piles" in each --set sort of like a Cracker Jack box, only you get to know the prize: a Junk Pile to practice with the Doctor Ben's Weathering Products and then add the finished casting to your model or layout!
  Since there are four (4) Weathering Stain Sets, for a limited time we will include SMM5501 in Stain Set #1; SMM5502 in Stain Set #2; SMM5503 in Stain Set #3; & SMM5504 in Stain Set #4! Each of these Junk Piles has a value of $4.89 to $5.89. Yes, the Junk Piles are labeled as HO but realistically, junk is a multi-scale item, right? Well, at least we think so and I've been known to mix scale junk on my dioramas for as longs as I have constructed them.

Kitbashing Ideas for the G-Street Warehouse Kit ...

  Some folks have mentioned that they already have a G-Street Warehouse Kit (from 1984) but no where to put this monster ... How about converting it into a Backdrop structure?

At right is a couple of suggestions of how to "kitbash" the G-Street Warehouse into a Backdrop kit. Don't let our suggestions limit the possibilities; it's your pike, arrange them to suit your needs! Also available are Concrete Backdrop Kits #1 & #2 ... no limits to the possibilities!

  As part of our Upcoming "Scratch Buildin' Series", we will offer all four walls, roof, loading docks and doors of this kit for individual purchase. Interested? Let us know!
