USA Independence 3-Day Sale!

 So, here it is; what we often taunt as the "Great Experiment", 243 years after 13 colonies united to declare their Independence on July 4, 1776. My, my how the world has changed since that day.
  All that said, we have a big surprise for you; we're starting our 3-Day Independence Day Event today June 3rd EDST and running all the way through Midnight July 5th EDST! Yes it does seem a little strange  to have a celebration sale in the middle of the week, but then tomorrow is the big day and everyone having cookouts and watching fireworks, so why not!
  In the meantime, an unannounced activity as we have been cleaning out the closets so-to-speak in preparation of the eventual business sale, we're updating products such as our Sequoia Scale Models inventory. Not surprising, we've found a whole lot of Sequoia that is NOT on our website. We'll also be thinning out the MilePost Models O scale and FinestKind S Scale product line as time permits over the next couple of weeks.
  So head on down through this Newsletter and don't forget that there are two savings opportunities--10% Off AND Free Shipping both with minimum purchases and tons of opportunities for mega savings! Have a safe celebration and we'll see you in the Hobby Room ...just as soon as I can find some volunteers to help me clean up the chaos from all the construction and re-organizing that we've been going through. Hint! Hint! You know who you are!

  About This Product:
This product works best in conjunction with other Doctor Ben's Weathering Products as well as competitor products. We recommend trying Realistic Rust on top of Instant Age and vise versa. As with all of our products, for the ultimate realism, apply turning your object upside down allowing gravity to pull the residue to the top of the protrusions. This way when you turn it right side up, the residue is not running down towards the bottom of the models and the effect looks just like real life.
For years Doctor Ben's (aka Richard E. Bendever) has kept these versatile Weathering Stains & Solutions to himself. So when that once famous "now defunct" Floquil© Flo-Stain product line stains started going for more than a $100 a bottle on eBay. That has been several years now and boy have things changed! What do we tell all our customers? "We Turn Toys into Models Just Check our Richard's models on our website.
