Hurricane Season, Already?

  Seriously, we've had two plus weeks of 90+ degree temperatures and the mid-west is having floods tornadoes! I don't even want to think what's going to happen when we start having hurricanes, too!!
  All that said, we're running a little behind in our kit casting because of the orders which we're getting close to getting caught up.This is my fault with all the doctor appointments--darn eye injections--I am so ready for the stem-cell treatments but my eye doctor says the trials may still be a year or two away, Darn!
  Email from Customer: Richard - do you have an alternative to the Out of production Floquil Oak stain color? Thanks for the help.AK
  My Reply: Yes, Doctor Ben's Realistic Oak Weathering Stain #1081
  Email from Customer: This is the exact answer I was hoping for. I got that one!  George Sellios has a detailing / weathering tip for finishing railroad ties and the book was written well before Floquil passed on..... and there you are, picking up the pieces. Also your name came up on a YouTube video by Ron Pare, who critiques high end craftsman kits as well as builds and weathers them.  He promoted you brand!!! Keep on, keeping on !!, AK My Reply: Thanks, AK! We're here to help!
  So here are a few of our many products that you may have forgotten or just didn't know that we offer! Enjoy & see yo in the Hobby Room, Ben.

Scale Model Masterpieces (formerly Thomas Yorke Ent.)

Random Stone Wall #SMM9000 

Multi-Scale Use-LabStone/Gypsum

Molded from the original Thomas Yorke hand-carved 1986 Master, the multi-use casting have never been made available ... until now!

Judge how this wall will look with your scale by the look of the HO, O & Scale figures shown in the image.

The overall dimensions of each Random Stone Wall is 7-1/2"" wide by 6"" tall and 3/8" thick. A Thomas Yourke Ent. brick wall will be available early next year!

Junk Piles included in Doctor Ben's Weathering Stain Sets Permanently! 
  We mentioned this announcement in a previous Newsletter  and the response and feedback has been very positive. Debbie & I felt it was worth a reminder in this Newsletter. Many thanks for the positive feedback!
  Originally available for a Limited Time, the response has been so great that we have made an addition of a Junk Pile in each of the four (4) Doctor Ben's "Weathering Stain Sets". Each set includes one of our brand new Scale Model Masterpieces "Junk Piles" (each set Junk Pile is different) and sort of like a Cracker Jack box; only you 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!
  The complete Junk Pile Assortment is found HERE on our website. And, 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.

   Split Granite Interlocking Wall-(8-7/8" Lg x 4-5/8” Tall)
Scale Model Masterpieces  Multi-Scale
Originally created for the Doctor Ben's Scale Consortium the Scale Tunnel Portal (and some other projects), this Split Granite Interlocking Wall is cast from an original master creation utilizing the Doctor Ben's #8880 (3/32") Baby Building Blocs. Use this Interlocking Wall to make your own tunnel portals, retaining walls, split waters, foundations without spending hours needed to scratch build the project. Simple cut & fit with a track saw & glue together!
  The overall dimensions of this Interlocking Wall are 8-7/8" wide by 4-5/8" tall and 3/8" thick. Notice that the individual 3/32" BBBs are staggered as not to overlap joints.
  Please realize that this item is NOT your typical Chooch/A.I.M. interlocking wall. This casting has been crafted with such high tolerances (as casting Labstone will allow) that when interlocked with another wall, the joint is practically impossible to identify. Casting thickness will vary slightly and filing/sanding interlocking finger/opening joints may be needed. Still, there has never been an Interlocking Wall Casting available with such an original, unique texture and finish. We promise that you will be impressed!
 SMM Castings and Detail Parts are composed of UNFINISHED/ UNASSEMBLED Labstone/Dental Stone castings-Assembly & Finish Required.

Faded Slate Gray Weathering Stain Doctor Ben's #DBZ1064
   Some time ago we mentioned that we added a new Doctor Ben's Weathering Stain. "Faded Slate Gray" (#1064) as  our newest flavor with a medium-dark musk and a hint of dense hardwood forest which is just perfect for that logging camp house and cook house application. If you've not figured out already what we have planned for this color, we're working on the long out-of-production HO & O scale Logging Camp Houses and Cook House Camp facilities.
  So our very latest Doctor Ben's Weathering Stain is Faded Slate Gray" (#1064) darker than the Worn Concrete (#1095) but not so dark that it has a nice faded look for those slate roof shingles.   

   This product works best in conjunction with other Doctor Ben's Weathering Products as well as competitor products. We recommend trying Realistic Rust on top of Instant Age and vise versa. As with all of our products, for the ultimate realism, apply turning your objeDBZ1097 - Doctor Ben's Weathering Stainct upside down allowing gravity to pull the residue to the top of the protrusions. This way when you turn it right side up, the residue is not running down towards the bottom of the models and the effect looks just like real life.

   We are also including Faded Slate Gray Weathering Stain in our Doctor Ben's Weathering Stain Set #3 (DBZ1079). Now you have two choices of adding Faded Slate Gray to your hobby color pallet!

    If you have specific color in mind for us to consider adding, please send us a Message and we'll add it to our want list so that you may add it to your Wish List!

Timber Tunnel Retaining Walls O/1:48 Scale #SMM9131 

Left & Right Retailing Walls (LabStone/Gypsum) as well as both walls as a Set

The overall dimensions of each Retaining Wall (Right and/or Left) are 6-7/8"" wide by 4-7/8"" tall and 3/8" thick.

All you have to do is stain, weather and install! Really, you don't know a really easy and fast way to stain resin & LabStone castings? Just Ask Doctor Ben!

  Cal Freight N Scale Update
The hottest Topic on Facebook is our N Scale Cal Freight & Details!
  Question #1: Just wondering if you will be producing Cal Freight industrial steps #2140?
Answer: Yes we will! This detail and many, many more are ideal products as additions to our already very popular Tilt-Up Spline Style Walls
  Question #2: Will you be casting the N Scale Cal Freight Details in Labstone like many of the HO Cal Freight stuff is cast? ... I hate resin!
Answer: Yes we will transition details to be cast in Labstone for many of the N Scale Details and, after the inventory of resin details of a detail runs out. The transition of N Scale Details to Labstone may not be possible for the tiniest details such as XXS vents, but you can be sure that we will give it a good try. Labstone is by far a much easier product to stain and weather especially if you are interested in using your Doctor Ben's Weathering Stains, Solutions and Pigments.
   FYI As a matter of fact, we have already started casting the N Scale Roof Top Access Stairway Shed (3pcs) CAL1000. And the package includes more casting than the original product use to include (1pc vs. 3pcs).
   Who knows, maybe we'll bring in some S scale & O scale details, too! 
  BTW New products are being uploaded to our website on a daily basis! Have a L@@K!
