YIKES!  Will Prices to Go Higher on Ebay?

This may NOT apply to you if you purchase our Doctor Ben's & Scale Model Masterpieces from us on our SECURE www.DEBenLLC.com website, but if you are one of our many eBay Customers, eBay is not only implementing (July 2020?) its *required* Seller payment system (fee apply) which has been plagued with hiccups and payment delays for about two years. Not only will eBay be raising the Seller Final Value Fees (FVF) on the purchase price of the item sold AND what the Buyer paid for postage on the purchase AND now eBay will add FVF to the Sales Tax that the Buyers pays on their purchase. And if you've NOT figured it out, Sellers will raise prices even higher to recoup this eBay Fees. You can read the Report in layman's terms here

  We had to delay our trip to the Eastern Shore of Maryland to celebrate with Debbie's now 100 year old Mother as well as the rest of the family who were planning to be there to celebrate. We are hoping that we may be able to reschedule the B-Day later in the Summer when the COVID-19 issue is under control. Also, I am looking forward to some yummy Eastern Shore crab cakes and Boardwalk Fries!
  Debbie and I hope that you and your family are still taking precautions to remain safe while this unpredictable virus continues to plague our planet. See you in the Hobby Room ... and Wash Your Hands!
BORDELLO & POOL HALL Kit HO (O Scale Release Delayed)
Scale Model Masterpieces/THOMAS A YORKE Ent. HO/1:87 Scale
Foot Print: 4-1/2" x 5-3/4"

 Just three years ago we re-released the design of this fantastic Craftsman kit to be much more like the "original" 1979 version (SEE Image) than a later Southwestern version Tom Yorke did a number of years later. But that's almost where it ends. We have used Tom Yorke 'original' hand-carved masters and created totally new castings to replace all that wood and time-consuming construction of the 2nd Floor Bordello, multi-pitched roofs, and both front facades ... More Here
  So just recently, a Customer asked if we had any pictures of this version where a modeler opted to add a corrugated roof in place of the standing seam roof. I thought to myself, as many of these kits that we've sold as well as Built Up Models, I don't recall anyone ever mentioning changing the roof. But what a neat idea!  So, do have or do you know of any Scale Model Masterpieces Bordello & Pool Hall models out there? We want to know ... Please! And I'll bet that there may be other, too! Contact us by replying to this email or give us a call at 770-666-8100  Thank You!.

Doctor Ben's Baby Building Blocs-Multi Scale

Alan H. recently posted  "I've used a lot of your products, like all the weathering products. My favorite item, though, was the bag of "building blocks," the stone pieces. I made a lot of cool little walls and dock supports all over the place. Was fun building a wall, putting fill behind it, adding foliage and weeds. Neat product!"
  Each Baby Building Bloc is about 1/8"thick x 1/4" x 1/2"long
  Doctor Ben's Baby Building Blocs are so simple to glue together with most any glue (we use CA) & it's so simple, some consider it child's play—but the unique realism of our original split-granite process will surprise you of home many retaining walls, structure foundations, you name it. Click the above image to view some of the products that Richard & others have constructed using this fantastic material. And if you would like to cast a mold to make multiples of your BBB masterpiece, simple ASK! We'll be happy to tell you how.
