The First Day of Fall!

  Are you ready? We are, and then some. 
  Welcome to our DEBenLLC Newsletter!

The hottest Topic this week: Cal Freight & Details!
  Question #1: Just wondering if you will be producing Cal Freight industrial steps #2140?
Answer: Yes we will! This detail and many, many more are ideal products as additions to our already very popular Tilt-Up Spline Style Walls
  Question #2: Will you be casting the N Scale Cal Freight Details in Labstone like many of the HO Cal Freight stuff is cast? ... I hate resin!
Answer: Yes we will transition details to be cast in Labstone for many of the N Scale Details and, after the inventory of resin details of a detail runs out. The transition of N Scale Details to Labstone may not be possible for the tiniest details such as XXS vents, but you can be sure that we will give it a good try. Labstone is by far a much easier product to stain and weather especially if you are interested in using your Doctor Ben's Weathering Stains, Solutions and Pigments.
   FYI As a matter of fact, we have already started casting the N Scale Roof Top Access Stairway Shed (3pcs) CAL1000. And the package includes more casting than the original product use to include (1pc vs. 3pcs).
   Who knows, maybe we'll bring in some S scale & O scale details, too! 
  BTW New products are being uploaded to our website on a daily basis! Have a L@@K!
 
 
   
Split Granite Interlocking Wall-(8-7/8" Lg x 4-5/8” Tall)
Scale Model Masterpieces  Multi-Scale
Originally created for the Doctor Ben's Scale Consortium the Scale Tunnel Portal (and some other projects), this Split Granite Interlocking Wall is cast from an original master creation utilizing the Doctor Ben's #8880 (3/32") Baby Building Blocs. Use this Interlocking Wall to make your own tunnel portals, retaining walls, split waters, foundations without spending hours needed to scratch build the project. Simple cut & fit with a track saw & glue together!
  The overall dimensions of this Interlocking Wall are 8-7/8" wide by 4-5/8" tall and 3/8" thick. Notice that the individual 3/32" BBBs are staggered as not to overlap joints.
  Please realize that this item is NOT your typical Chooch/A.I.M. interlocking wall. This casting has been crafted with such high tolerances (as casting Labstone will allow) that when interlocked with another wall, the joint is practically impossible to identify. Casting thickness will vary slightly and filing/sanding interlocking finger/opening joints may be needed. Still, there has never been an Interlocking Wall Casting available with such an original, unique texture and finish. We promise that you will be impressed!
 SMM Castings and Detail Parts are composed of UNFINISHED/ UNASSEMBLED Labstone/Dental Stone castings-Assembly & Finish Required.
 

Junk Piles included in Doctor Ben's Weathering Stain Sets Permanently! 
  We mentioned this announcement in the last Newsletter a few weeks ago and the response and feedback has been very positive. Debbie & I felt it was worth a reminder in this Newsletter. Many thanks for the positive feedback!
  Originally available for a Limited Time, the response has been so great that we have made an addition of a Junk Pile in each of the four (4) Doctor Ben's "Weathering Stain Sets". Each set includes one of our brand new Scale Model Masterpieces "Junk Piles" (each set Junk Pile is different) and sort of like a Cracker Jack box; only you 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!
  The complete Junk Pile Assortment is found HERE on our website. And, 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.
