Winter Solstice & Just Days Until Christmas!

That's right! December 21st at 11:47 EST is the official Winter Solstice which also happens to be the shortest day of sunlight for the year. And more time to model inside where it's nice & warm (Northern Hemisphere) and lots of hot cocoa!
  Today, December 19, 2019 at 3PM EST is your last chance to place an order and have it mailed to you before we leave for the Holidays! Our apologies for this late, last minute notice, but things around here are quite hectic and this Newsletter seemed to be the bst way to let everyone know.
  At right is our 2020 Doctor Ben's Product Flyer which is an abbreviated version of the Doctor Ben's Product Catalog. Pretty much every order that we mail our includes the Product Flyer and for 2020 rather than our usual Scale Model Masterpieces kit on the cover, we opted to use an image of the somewhat well known J.W. Wenrich's Manufactory diorama that I constructed in the early 1990's. I discuss my primary point for buildings this diorama in the Smoky Mountain Model Building Category of our website. CLICK HERE to read all about it.  See you in the Hobby Room ... ...

Two-Stall Short Line/ Industrial Engine House Kit - HO
 Drive Thru 1 & 2 Door Options Available - HO Foot Print: 6” x 9”lg (10-3/4” w/Lean-to)

  Yes, we know that you've been waiting a very long time for this announcement, and it's finally here! The image at right is what this Two Stall Engine House (drive thru option available) looks like naked-without any weathering. The sliding doors are positioned in place ready to be attached to the massive I-beam & support just as soon as the inspection pit and track are installed. And I may not have mentioned, the roof for this model is "removable" which will make the inspection pit (included) and track an easy install.Eventually, we'll sell this finished model, but that will have to wait until next year!

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.

  Granite Ballast Grey Weathering Solution #1056 creates that light, dusty grey that is so difficult to achieve with opaque products. 

  Grimy Dusty Buff Weathering Solution #1057 creates that light, dusty buff (tan) from road travel and wind that is so difficult to achieve with opaque products. 

  Huck’s White Wash Weathering Solution #1058 is just what it says.How To #1 BookletEverything from lime stains on a locomotive, to faded white washed wood and even the bright white lettering on a sign or on the side of a boxcar; the results are remarkable!

Special Update to Doctor Ben's Weathering Stain Sets!
  We have made a change to each of the four (4) Doctor Ben's "Weathering Stain Sets". In each set we are including one of our  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 various scale junk on my dioramas for as long as I remember!

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