Spotlight Doctor Ben's Weathering Pigments & Grocery Kit

  Welcome to Part III of our Doctor Ben's Weathering Product Spotlight series. I discussed the Doctor Ben's Weathering Stains in last week's Newsletter and this week we're sharing with you all about out Doctor Ben's Weathering Pigments.
  The development and use of the Weathering Pigments was a result of being an ingredient of the Doctor Ben's Weathering Solutions for the past 25+ years. Customers and fellow modelers would constantly complain about the few  weathering powders/chalks available at the time because of the poor adhesive qualities and lack of concentration causing them to "disappear" when touch or sealed. So, we initially created 60+ colors way back when and now there is an entire industry of "weathering powder" manufacturers. And only Doctor Ben's offers the only Weathering Solution, Stain and Pigment How-To booklet series of instructions!

"Scale Products for Discriminating Modelers"  


"Back Road Buildin's" The Grocery Pilot Model is finally done!

 The Grocery
"Traveling the back roads years ago, one would happen across a tiny grocery store around every other bend in the road or over the next rise. Even today, these picturesque treasures can still be found. Wood siding deeply scarred by grain and rot and weathered a beautiful silver gray. Rusted tin roofing sheets all but covering the original wood shakes. Front porch sagging and with a decided lean. And as though in staunch defiance to this earthly appeal are a multitude of colorful metal signs plastered everywhere advertising the contents of the interior: colas, soaps, cigarettes, remedies, staples, and clothing." (Introduction from original 1980's advertising in the NG&SL Gazette magazine)

  The Grocery in O Scale is the first of this series with a bunch more to follow in both O Scale AND HO Scale. Above and at left is the "finished" Pilot Model images, where I finally found some spare time to finish applying the signs and adding the details that are included in this kit. If anyone is interested, this built-up model like some many other pilot models (still available) is For Sale.

And you will be amazed at all the "Options" of Extra Details, Doctor Ben's Stains & Solutions used for finish & weathering we have added to this kit which means huge $$$ savings for you!

This *original* 1987 Thomas A. Yorke Ent. kit has been slightly revamped with some modeling technique updates and details added as well as including a significant update of the instructions. Now, we know that we could have kept the price down even more if we cast this kit in Hydrocal©; and didn't have such high standards of casting quality (detail density bubbles, pits, voids, etc.), we just refuse to sell second quality castings. But, then if we did cut corners to save some money, you would not be able to appreciate een more the intricately, hand-carved details that Tom Yorke spent so many hours working on each and every original master pattern for this kit. Trust us, you would be able to tell the difference!

 This kit includes full-size drawings, scale lumber, Grandt Line windows & doors, and the detailed construction and weathering instructions that you've come to expect from Scale Model Masterpieces including a bunch more stuff! 

O Scale Foot Print: 3-1/8"wide x 5-1/16"" long. We'll bet that there are a few S/Sn3 Modeler who can adapt this kit to their scale, too! 

  Be sure to check out the website updates for this kit which now include options to add detail packages, and the Weathering Stains and Weathering Solutions described in the kit instructions used to complete this kit.
