Brutal Heat & a Pandemic ...

  That's right; there are Southern US states from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean  with 90+ degree temperatures and skyrocketing COVID-10 Positive Tests! And schools are suppose to open in the next couple of week! YIKES!
  On a more interesting note we are activating our Doctor Ben's & Scale Model Masterpieces/Yorke websites in the next few days. Recently many potential "Business" buyers are asking about the websites and how the websites will be set up. Yes, customers will be able to make purchases from both websites but we won't be able to combine multiple website orders right away. Only the website will have both product lines for the time being.
  As we continue to reduce the "other stuff in our DeBenLLC website, the dwindling *tons* of Sequoia Scale Models details have been going pretty quickly. We did find a few  which didn't make it to the website way back when and now they are posted. 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, hope that you're having a great model building Summer. Our friend Darryl Huffman has re-ignited his Blog and wouldn't you know it, the very first thing he shares is his version of our Pool Hall & Bordello kit (original 1980s) which just happens to have a 5 STAR Review is in "Limited Quantity" status.
  We'll be crazy busy the rest of this week activating the Doctor Ben's website and then the Scale Model Masterpieces website.  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!

  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!

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
