Release the Hounds!? Oh My!

  Business here at DeBenLLC is still extremely busy even though the COVID-19 continues to plague many folks in most of the world--except for New Zealand as of the last report. We were able to locate some very expensive Isopropyl Alcohol needed to make some Doctor Ben's products and one high school student has been transporting molds and castings home and back to help us with the volume of castings needed for orders. Debbie and I ventured out on Monday for our weekly grocery run/pickup and we amazed at the volume of traffic on the roads. WOW! It's only been a week since the Stay-in-Place Order was lifted, but the shear volume of traffic was like there was no virus and everyone had gotten back to there daily activities. Very puzzling.
  Anyway, we hear reports that there's a whole lot of modeling going on and we're looking for images of folks using Doctor Ben's and also modeling Scale Model Masterpieces kits and details. Above Right you will find Scott Perry's most recent effort to use Doctor Ben's Baby Building Blocs to construct an On30 Ash Pit. Nice Job, Scott!
  And finally, there are just a few of the HO Jordan Highway Miniature Kits and Fine Scale Miniatures kit boxes w/instructions left. As always, See you in the Hobby Room & Wash Your Hands!
Granite Ballast Grey Weathering Solution 4oz
Doctor Ben’s Scale Consortium 
Granite Ballast Grey Weathering Solution #1056-4 oz. creates that light, dusty grey that is so difficult to achieve with opaque products. Additionally, this Weathering Solution reveals a 3-D effect for more realism rather than just a flat color wash. The Granite Ballast Grey Weathering Solution is also great for that silvery, grey driftwood color that is so hard to replicate in nature.  ... About This Product... 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...

HO & O Scale Logging Cook House Kits!

Scale Model Masterpieces / Thomas A Yorke Ent. HO Foot Print: 3-1/2" x 6-1/4" / O Foot Print: 5-1/2” x  10”

 Not long ago we told you that we would make this kit once again available. It seems that many customers wanted to have just the Cook House for their Logging Camp. So we have bumped up the re-introduction of this kit.

  In case you missed the previously mentioned announcement when the the Logging Camp Set was introduced, we've done things just a little bit differently with the Bunk Houses. The Cook House is the same except for the better instructions, roofing and the load of details included, but the Bunk Houses now 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  Continued here for More about this product

If you’ve checked out any of our work, you’ll see that we love to weather buildings.

Todd and myself both equally enjoy adding that old, beaten and weathered touch to our structures. It just brings a building to life and really makes them pop. So we were very excited that we were given the chance to weather or add some depth to our structures with a new (to us) product. Continued Here for the rest of the Review!
