First Day of Summer! Are You Ready?

 That's right, this Friday is June 21st, and at 6:07 AM EDST will become the First Day of Summer 2019. So, what better way to get ready for Summer than to have another NG&SL Gazette Magazine Sale! We've had several successful sales where lots of our customers took advantage of this great offer. Frankly, we need the space and what space that we've made so far is already filled with products & kits. So, our sacrifice is your gain on these amazing magazines! First come, first get Limited Supply ... please scroll down in this Newsletter!
  Resent message we received: Hi, Sad to see you stop making these kits but the plaster kit side does sound interesting. Do you have a rough, ballpark of what you’re looking for, for the SMM side? First, we have NOT stopped casting Scale Model Masterpieces kits & details. In fact, we are interviewing High School students to hire another person to help us with the casting, kit assembly, making products and general cleaning. This time of year has typically been our "slow down time" where we cast molds like crazy fools and build up a stock for when the sales time returns...but not this year! Also, we have started a "work-in-progress" SMM For Sale listing of information & questions from Customers & potential SMM Buyers. You will find this listing and its information in the left column of each of the four SMM Product Category pages. CLICK on the above image to go directly to the Main SMM Category page.
  FYI as we clean up and sort out *stuff* that we have acquired over the past fourteen years (and some items much longer), some of the items will be listed here in our website and/or listed in our eBay Store.. De-Cluttering is  a brutal experience but needs to be done. See you in the Hobby Room ...

Doctor Ben's Realistic Oak Weathering Stain 
Exact match to Floquil 1980s Oak Stain! 

  Using this Doctor Ben's Product: Ever since 1991 we have offered Doctor Ben's Aged Driftwood Weathering Stain as a non-petroleum, identical color match replacement for the long defunct Floquil Flo-Stains© products; especially Floquil Driftwood stain made famous by the Fine Scale Miniatures kit instructions of the 1970s to present.
  Thousands of jars of Doctor Ben's Aged Driftwood Weathering Stain have been sold with equally thousands of satisfied customers. This product is designed to be applied as a stain and should not affect integrity of the material to which it is applied. A good rule of thumb that we feel best describes the coverage of the Doctor Ben's Weathering Stains is that one coat will provide a light coverage; two-three coats will provide a medium coverage and four or more coats with build up, the more porous the surface, the more difficult it is to remove, so test a small less noticeable area before the Doctor Ben's Weathering Stain is applied to the entire model/project.  And Read about all the great uses in our How To #2 "The ABC's of Staining Castings & Models" booklet and in our website Blog (June 2015 Archives). "We Turn Toys into Models!".

Doctor Ben's Weathering Solution Spotlight:DBZ1154 - Doctor Ben's Weathering Solution

   Weathered Rust #1154 Ready-To-Use Weathering Solution for Wood, Plastic, Hydrocal©, Metal & Much More-4oz Jar & 8oz, too!

  When I first began building Fine Scale Miniatures kits  (manufactured by George Sellios) many years ago, the part that I enjoyed the most was the weathering. Nothing irked me more than to build a model in a brand new, pristine condition. I began looking for something more that what the FSM instructions offered. Don't get me wrong, I owe a great deal of what I learned about building models from building early Thomas A. Yorke kits, Model Masterpieces kits, Builders in Scale kits, Timberline kits; heck, there's even a thing or two to learn from building the Campbell kits.

Using this Doctor Ben's Product: Weathered Rust differs from Realistic Rust in that it is more like the rust that you would see on old farm equipment sitting out in the field—How To #1 Bookletdampened by the morning dew slowly etching away at the metal surface. This product is a topical application that does not affect the surface integrity of the model. This product has built in adhesive polymers that enable it to stick to any surface. Get too much on and want to remove it? Not a problem, read on about all the great uses in our How To #1 booklet and in our website Blog.. You will not be disappointed.
