Again? Black Friday in Two Weeks!

  Once again, it certainly looks like many of the Big Box Stores already running TV ads trying to get the jump on each other. Unfortunately, many of the *Prime* Holiday products may still sitting in containers on ships and on the docks waiting for some type of transportation. We’re not sure if we'll jump into the early sales ... guess that we'll see what our Customers think!
  Happy Veteran's Day 2021 to all our US Service men and women. As I have previously mentioned that I grew up a Military 'Brat' myself in the 50s & 60s. I remember many of the sacrifices that our family made as the US Navy moved us around the world several times. And when we were very young and stationed in the States both of my parents often worked night jobs to bring in a little extra income because 1960s military service families (Enlisted) income was at the poverty line at the time. Please support our US Veterans because they deserve it for keeping us safe!  
  Anyway, we hope that you have a great week ... we are bracing for another *Cold* Front which is supposed to wither away thanks to all these crazy changing weather patterns. As always, please wear a face mask and wash your hands so we may see you someday in the Hobby Room real soon

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.

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.
