Two-Stall Short Line/ Industrial Engine House Kit - HO
 Drive Thru 1 & 2 Door Options Available - HO Foot Print: 6” x 9”lg (10-3/4” w/Lean-to)

  Yes, we know that you've been waiting a very long time for this announcement, and it's finally here! The image at right is what this Two Stall Engine House (drive thru option available) looks like naked-without any weathering. The sliding doors are positioned in place ready to be attached to the massive I-beam & support just as soon as the inspection pit and track are installed. And I may not have mentioned, the roof for this model is "removable" which will make the inspection pit (included) and track an easy install.Eventually, we'll sell this finished model, but that will have to wait until next year!

G-Street Warehouse Kit Release

by Thomas A. Yorke Enterprises/Scale Model Masterpieces New Release HO/HOn3/HOn30/1;87

Footprint: HO-Scale 96' x 40' (5-1/4" x 8-1/4" + Dock Space)

 This impressive structure was based on one still standing in San Bernardino, California. The original cast concrete structure was built around 1920, but it has seen some changes over the years and our rendition incorporates these. Our patterns reflected the uneven and rough wooden form board impressions as well as "oozing" concrete from between them so typical of cast concrete structures.

You may already know about our Doctor Ben's Realistic Rust, Instant Age & DBZ1180 - Doctor Ben's Weathering Solution SetWeathered Rust, the following is a detailed description about some of our equally as impressive Doctor Ben's Weathering Solutions also available in our Store:

  Granite Ballast Grey Weathering Solution #1056 creates that light, dusty grey that is so difficult to achieve with opaque products. 

  Grimy Dusty Buff Weathering Solution #1057 creates that light, dusty buff (tan) from road travel and wind that is so difficult to achieve with opaque products. 

  Huck’s White Wash Weathering Solution #1058 is just what it says.How To #1 BookletEverything from lime stains on a locomotive, to faded white washed wood and even the bright white lettering on a sign or on the side of a boxcar; the results are remarkable! 

   Pond  Scum Weathering Solution #1059 looks just like to sounds. Picture a pond or small lake out in the country or an isolated inlet where there’s not much activity.
 And only Doctor Ben’s has it! Click Here to find more about this product!

Special Addition to Doctor Ben's Weathering Stain Sets!
  We have made an addition to each of the four (4) Doctor Ben's "Weathering Stain Sets". In each set we are including one of our brand new Scale Model Masterpieces "Junk Piles" in each --set sort of like a Cracker Jack box, only you get to know the prize: a Junk Pile to practice with the Doctor Ben's Weathering Products and then add the finished casting to your model or layout!
  Since there are four (4) Weathering Stain Sets, for a limited time we will include SMM5501 in Stain Set #1; SMM5502 in Stain Set #2; SMM5503 in Stain Set #3; & SMM5504 in Stain Set #4! Each of these Junk Piles has a value of $4.89 to $5.89. Yes, the Junk Piles are labeled as HO but realistically, junk is a multi-scale item, right? Well, at least we think so and I've been known to mix scale junk on my dioramas for as longs as I have constructed them.

Kitbashing Ideas for the G-Street Warehouse Kit ...

  Some folks have mentioned that they already have a G-Street Warehouse Kit (from 1984) but no where to put this monster ... How about converting it into a Backdrop structure?

At right is a couple of suggestions of how to "kitbash" the G-Street Warehouse into a Backdrop kit. Don't let our suggestions limit the possibilities; it's your pike, arrange them to suit your needs! Also available are Concrete Backdrop Kits #1 & #2 ... no limits to the possibilities!

  As part of our Upcoming "Scratch Buildin' Series", we will offer all four walls, roof, loading docks and doors of this kit for individual purchase. Interested? Let us know!

Brand New! Logging Camp Portable Bunk House Kits!

Scale Model Masterpieces / Thomas A Yorke Ent. #SMM3123 / O Scale #9123

HO Foot Prints: 3" x 6" & 1-1/2" x 3" (2 structures) And O Scale, too!

 Not long ago we told you that we would make this kit once again available. It seems that many customers wanted to have more than just two Logging Bunk Houses for their Logging Camp. So we have bumped up the re-introduction of this kit--actually two kits since there are two Bunk Houses in this kit.

  As we previously mentioned in the Logging Camp Set, we've done things just a little bit differently with the Bunk houses. Both of the Bunk Houses have windows in both the front and the rear walls instead of the original windowless front and rear walls. This was a common practice in many of the Logging Companies 

PLUS! Shown in the image above, we are including a bunch of SMM Details in this kit: (2stacks) Fire Wood #5055, (2pcs-1 open/1 closed) Wooden Barrels #5048, Wood Boxes (2pcs) #5045, Wood boxes (2pcs) #5050, Hay Bales #5220 (3pcs)
