Doctor Ben's BLOG Topic of the Week: 

"How-To The ABCs of Staining Castings"
  Modeling materials have come a long way since the good ol’ days of modeling with cereal boxes and erector sets. Now-a-days many modeling products are made of white metal, resin, or plaster all representing brick, stone & wood. If all the modeling components were made of the same material, figuring a way to color or stain them would be a snap. Well, they're not and we help explain how to make them look realistic in this recently updated How-To booklet.

  We have added the complete How-To #2 booklet (updated) with color photos to our Doctor Ben's BLOG: Tips & Techniques. This was our second How-To Booklet that Debbie & I first published and we have updated this booklet (2nd Edition) with more illustrative images as well as a new cover photo of the updated Scale Model Masterpieces Practice Wall kits. The basic techniques of this informative booklet have a proven track record of realistic weathering finishes and remain consistent when seeking to achieve realistic weathering success. 

   Additionally, each Doctor Ben's Weathering product line has a How-To booklet that provides techniques that, by using them, enable both the novice and experienced modeler to recreate the look that is described in each booklet. In the event that you have a specific issue that you are unable to resolve, please call or send us an email with your questions, and we will be happy to assist you in your weathering challenge. Discussion is continued in the Doctor Ben's BLOG...

    Also remember that all Doctor Ben's Weathering Stain Sets include the Doctor Ben's How-To #2: The ABCs of Staining Castings booklet. If you already have a How-To #2 booklet, you still may like to substitute another How-To booklet when purchasing a Weathering Solution Set. To receive How-To #1 or How-To #3 as a substitute for the #2 booklet already in the Weathering Stain just be sure to make a note of this change to your order in the 'Comments' section (bottom of the Checkout page) in your Shopping Cart.

  Finally, another addition that we have added to the "Weathering Stain Sets" it to include (Limited Time) one of our brand new Scale Model Masterpieces Detail products in the set sort of like a Cracker Jack box, only you get to know the prize: a Junk Pile to practice on. 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 and by the way, this offer is NOT available in our Ebay Store.
