Here Comes Spring...Sort Of!

    Dear friends, family, and customers
  This is Debbie. I know you are used to hearing from Dr. Ben, but I need a minute with you. We have been telling you for some time now that we are selling our businesses because we can't keep up with them anymore. We have had many interested parties, but so far nobody has had the interest, money, time, and space to take the plunge and become a business owner.
  As much as we would like to keep running Dr Ben's and Scale Model Masterpieces, it is getting to be harder and harder for us. In other words, we are getting old and tired, and we need to retire. To make matters worse, Dr. Ben's macular degeneration and astigmatism are making it increasingly difficult for him to do the things he needs to do to keep the business running. Some of you have noticed that he makes mistakes in our newsletters. I'm sure you don't realize that his eyes play tricks on him. He also has trouble training our high school apprentices, and the two that we have now will be graduating and moving on soon. It is even difficult for him to communicate with our wonderful customers.
  We would really like to sell both businesses together, both because it will be easier on our wonderful customers if they could continue to purchase everything in one place and because whoever buys them together will get lots of “extras” (shelving, etc.). So we are asking all of you to think of anyone that you think would possibly like to own an established business that will bring in money right away and that also has room to grow. We are offering a finder fee to anyone that puts us in touch with someone who purchases either of our businesses, and yes, we will pay double if they buy both.
  And if you are considering buying one or both of our businesses, what are you waiting for? The sooner you make the decision, the sooner you will start making money—and the more “extras” you will get. We are barely able to keep up with our orders, so we are not able to make much in the way of finished products to have on hand. So the sooner you buy the business/businesses, the more ready-to-sell items you will get, also.
  This company has been our main source of income for many years now and it is also our retirement fund. Because the cost of goods has gone up so much lately, if we don't sell the businesses soon, we will have to raise our asking prices and maybe our product prices also, so that we can continue to buy our raw materials and business supplies and still be able to retire when we do sell.
  If you are a customer you will want us to sell before we have to raise our prices, so your prices won't go up as much. Because we have tried to keep our prices as low as we could, the new owner/owners will probably have to raise the product prices after they take over, but if we have to raise our selling prices, they will have to raise them even more. So please help us find one or two buyers. You will be helping us and also yourself.
  If you are a friend or family member, please try to think of someone you know who is looking for a business opportunity. You could make a little money and save us from dying of exhaustion!
     Thank you!

Small Town Stone Jail Kit with Details-Free Postage! (Limited Time) Footprint: 4-1/2" square
Thomas A. Yorke Enterprises/Scale Model Masterpieces O Scales
  'Lots of small towns that can't afford the big, fancy jail with heating, electric and such. Heck, if it weren't for 'ol lady widow Nichols to bring a couple of meals a day to rowdy residents who reside for more than a night, folks just might forget about them. Those walls are two feet thick and the floor and roof are solid concrete-- ain't nobody with just a spoon gonna dig their way out of there. Maybe next time they'll not take shots at the picture of the Mayor's wife hanging over the bar!

  This kit represents structures that were common from the old West and the Civil War to more contemporary times in small towns. The structure is very sturdily built of cut stone blocks atop a masonry type floor panel. The floor can be packed clay or concrete depending upon the era modeled. Every small town needs a jail. More about this excellent kit HERE!

Waitin' on the 5:05 A shrill whistle breaks the stillness of the evening air. Soon the little engine with a single combine in tow will round the curve and pull up to the tiny depot. The 5:05 is right on time. Originally, Thomas A. Yorke called this station the Rocopilla Depot. The original Rocopilla Depot kit had no specific prototype, but the basic construction techniques used for this model were inspired by a little station south of the border... CLICK HERE & Free Shipping Limited Time, too!
Doctor Ben's Product Review!
by Brett Wiley
I LOVE making metal roofs and adding metal siding to my structures. The metal roof, when applied right, painted well and weathered to look like an old rusty metal roof just looks awesome. Now I understand that you don’t have to paint metal roofing/siding to look rusted and worn, but that’s just our style and we like the tired and old feeling for our buildings. CLICK HERE
