  Just in case you have not noticed the Travel Message on our Hope page (and Ebay Store), we've been spending some quality time with family and especially Debbie's Mom who has just turned 99 years old! We'll be headed back home this weekend depending on travel weather conditions.
  It appears that  there could be a good deal of rain along the the way. If you are one of the many Customers who have made a purchase on either our website or our Ebay/Etsy/eCrater Store during the time that we've been traveling, Debbie and I thank you for your patience and understanding while you very patiently await your purchases to arrive. As always, we will mail your order just as quickly as possible after our return and in the vent that you have placed multiple orders, please let us know with a CRM so that we may combine your orders and Credit you some Postage Refund,.
  That said, we're receiving many Product Reviews (especially the Doctor Ben's Aged Driftwood) all the time and for this we are very grateful. And we would like more because this feedback may be read by a customer considering purchasing the product and reading about another user's experience may aid them in making a decision.

We've brought this SMM product line a long ways since purchasing the Thomas A. Yorke enterprisesand California Freight & Details Co over the past ten years.

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)

   This HO scale Two Stall EngineHouse SMM3111 (drive thru option available) looks (to me) 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.

Doctor Ben's Weathering Pigments
  As a single component of the Doctor Ben's Weathering Products®, the Industrial Weathering Pigments are an even more powerful tool in creating a realistic Model.
