First Day of Summer!

   OK, Summer doesn't officially arrived until this Saturday at 5:44PM EST; and it's supposed to reach 90 degrees in Atlanta, Georgia! YIKES!
  We hear that folks are finding that the "jobs" aren't coming back as quickly as officials had hoped which is really disappointing for many. Georgia has now opened up to nearly everyone except elderly care centers and folks with "underlying" health issues. We're also seeing a good amount of public protesting and not everyone is wearing a masks ... the medical medical officials say of the this may lead to a re-occurrence of the virus infection in the population. We certainly hope not.
  Still, lots of things going on here including the return of a number of products (SEE below). And no, the O Scale Bordello is not one that things returning at this time. Next month we'll start interviewing High School students to help us with our businesses. One of the two Graduated HS students is back helping us to make products and yes, social distancing AND Masks are being used in our work areas!
  We're still receiving inquiries from folks asking lots of questions about our businesses that we have for sale. Many of them have stated that have been furloughed and/or they are nearing retirement and looking for a turn-key operation hoping to avoid all the complications of *growing* a business from scratch. I can't say that I don't blame them. When we purchased Thomas A Yorke Ent nearly ten years ago, Doctor Ben's was already in place and quite busy at the time. It took us almost two years to sort through the hundreds of boxes containing thousands of "un-marker/non-labeled molds, master patterns, drawings,literature and minutia that came with the purchase of the business.Things are very organized now but there's always room for improvement!
  So, have a great Father's Day this Sunday! See you in the Hobby Room ... And Wash Your Hands!

*NEW* Worn Brick Weathering Pigment-2oz
Doctor Ben's Scale Consortium #1371
  We sincerely believe that this is the most realistic topical application that you will ever find-guaranteed! Doctor Ben's Worn Brick Weathering Pigments are intensely strong but easily thinned with Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol (or water) to reduce its preferred intensity. Using Doctor Ben's Worn Brick Weathering Pigments is ideal for adding the realistic weathered look by applying this product dry with a stiff hobby brush or using the lid for the jar to create a pallet from which various intensities may be created to flow into cracks and crevasses creating the illusion of shadows and depth. All this and much, much more is found in our Doctor Ben's How-To: #3 instructional booklet!

Doctor Ben's How-To #4: Hot Glue Casting Technique booklet  image text

 A number of years ago I was browsing through my old Gazette magazines and I picked up the January/February 1982 issue where I found an interesting article. In this long-out-of print magazine, I found an article about casting detail parts. In that article Terry Metcalfe described how he cast parts by melting beads of a thermoplastic called “Makit and Bakit” beads in RTV molds using an ordinary kitchen oven. I decided that this process was definitely NOT going to work for me. ...

  It has been nearly 30 years since my "Hot Glue Casting" technique was published in the "Narrow Gauge & Short Line Gazette" magazine. Although this innovative process hasn't changed much over time, the availability and cost of Room Temperature Vulcanizing Silicone (RTV) as well as weathering and finishes has had some significant innovations. Now is as good a time as any to refresh this article with additional information and lots more color photos than was in the original publication.

O Scale Logging Camp Cook House & Portable Cabin Houses Kits

HO & O Scale 3-structure Limited Time Set has Ended!

But individual Kits are still available in HO & O Scale!
 This Limited Run Kit ran much longer than expected! But, just like the HO version, this O scale kit is available separately as a Cook House Kit and separately as a Portable Camp House Kit. We have had tons of requests in both scales for just the Cook House or just the Portable Cabins. Hopefully, (or maybe the New Owner?) a Tool Shed and a Saw Sharpening Shed might be offered as well!

  Originally we things just a little bit differently. The Cook & Portable Cabin Houses included windows in the rear walls instead of the original windowless rear walls. We will be going back to the plain rear walls in the portable units in the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned for more information to come soon.

  PLUS! Kits include a ton of Details ...  continued here ... Is anyone thinking Happy Father's Day?
