Once Again Heat Across the Southeast

  For the past several weeks the weather has either been mid-90 plus the addition of a humidity caused heat index resulting in 100+ degree temperatures, or less than 90 degrees and inches of rain per hour when and where we least need it!
  And one again Georgia is one of a handful of States where this COVID BA5  variant causing hospitalizations to once again increase number of patients. The Georgia increased Positive test rates has resulted in some government buildings to require folks entering to once again wear masks! Darn!
  As we continue to reduce the "other stuff in our DeBenLLC website, the dwindling *tons* of  HO Scale Sequoia Scale Models details have been going pretty quickly. We did find a few items which didn't make it to the website way back when. These remaining few are now listed on the website and some are in our Ebay Store. If you are following us on Facebook you've seen all the announcements of our Sequoia Details Close Out. One last point on the Sequoia is that since there are so many Sequoia parts that have only a quantity of one or two, we have listed them in our eBay Store.
  Anyway, we've been sending many reformulated Doctor Ben's Weathering Stains and Solutions to customers. Wouldn't you know it; the biggest issue is "The induction seals are a pain in the backside to get open!" We'll, it's either a great seal or a leaky jar! Want to participate? Add a Message to your next Doctor Ben;s Order and we'll see what is available!
hope that you're having a great model building Summer. We've been crazy busy de-bugging the Doctor Ben's website and *soon* the Scale Model Masterpieces websites. We would have done this much sooner but Orders continue to come in fast and furious with everyone staying home and weathering & building models ... Who knew?!  See you in the Hobby Room ... And be sure to wash your hands and wear a face covering whenever possible! Thank You!

Staining & Weathering Tree Stumps using     Doctor Ben's Weathering


  The "Tips & Techniques" Blog article is more like “how I do it” than a “How-To-Do-It” and this technique works for all scales—Z to 1:1. And yes, a copy of this "Tips & Techniques" Blog article is included with Scale Model Masterpieces Old Tree Stumps sets purchased 

  Please note that this is a very abbreviated how-to description and that the "whole technique' is found on our website Blog by clicking on any of the images in this Newsletter.

  Doctor Ben’s Industrial Weathering Pigments (IWP) are used to paint and color the tree stumps as well as rock work, scenery stains and washes, weathering and you name it. Just like the Doctor Ben's Weathering Stain which also could be use for this technique, these products are very easy to use (no previous experience necessary) by using any Isopropyl rubbing alcohol (70% works fine) as the wetting agent or to turn the dry pigments

into a highly tinted colored liquid.

  There are numerous browns of the Doctor Ben’s Industrial Weathering Pigments to use for the bark. You can pick one that looks best on your layout or mix them up for a more diverse look. Also, you can apply a wash of Aged Driftwood (gray & faded) Rustic Oak (browns & yellows) and Natural Pine (green & mossy) to the colored stumps when you are done for a more faded, natural look. Continued Here
