First Week of Fall!

  Here we are just a couple of days into Fall and our News Weather person said we should expect 7-10 more days of 90-ish temperatures--YUK! And we've not had rain of any value in weeks which is great if you don't want the grass to grow, but even the local Georgia recreational lake are down 5-6 inches which is not good for boating enthusiasts!
  All that said, we've got a bunch of casting caught up and our HO & N scale Corrugation replenished. We spoke with some more folks interested in our business since the last Newsletter and there are quite a few interested prospects. Even though we've been very busy all Summer long, in another month our selling season will really start to ramp up and may make it even more of a hectic transition process; time will tell.
  One of our Military modelers (Terry Bates) sent in some amazing images of a World War II airplane that has been weathered with Doctor Ben's. We've had several Buyer Prospects ask about our Customer Base. Yes, we have many, many model railroads in ever scale/gauge imaginable as well as military modelers, jewelry artists, 1:12 scale horse saddle modelers, customer guitarists, interior decorators, and a bunch more literally all over the work. I won't drop any names, but we even have a number of celebrities some who have received an Oscar or more.
  That's it for today. We'll see you in the Hobby Room ... just as soon as Pat gets over here and helps me put stuff away from all the remodeling that we've had done!

  We receive lots of weathering & finish questions every week and every so often we receive a question that i feel other modelers may be interested in reading:
  "I have some of your black weathering solution/stain. I want to use it (or something more effective) to highlight the seams and gaps around the various panels and doors on a Galloping Goose model without leaving much residue on the main part of the panels."
 REPLY:  After stirring the Doctor Ben's product real well, use a spoon to move some of the Doctor Ben's into a small cup and add half as many spoons of Isopropyl Alcohol (70%) into the same cup and stir. The use a small round brush to pick up the mixture and aim the brush into the seams and gaps around the various panels and doors.
  Wet a clean paper towel with the alcohol to wipe off any Doctor Ben's from where you don't want it. Allow it to dry and if it's not dark enough, repeat until you like what you see.
  Pretty simple, huh? Send us some pics of the finish model we can post on our website! Got more questions? ASK!
