While the Cats are Away ...

  That's right, you may remember we mentioned in last week's newsletter that we would be traveling very soon. So, we moved up our departure to see family and hopefully help our with the *big* move  Debbie's 99 year old Mom has decided to move into an assisted care facility and we want to be there to help. So off we go!
  The good news for you is that we're not leaving until this weekend so you still have a few days to stock up on Doctor Ben's & Scale Model Masterpieces/Yorke and the *tons* of Sequoia Scale Models Details! And by the way; we found a bunch that 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 (1980s) which just happens to have a 5 STAR Review!
  We'll be in touch from time-to-time when we have Internet access. Good service is often very spotty on Maryland's Eastern Shore. It's a good thing that the Crab Cakes are amazing! See you in the Hobby Room ...

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
