OOP Craftsman Kits
Many, many years ago when my desire to create a personal collection of all the Fine Scale Miniatures kits that George Sellios ever made I assembled this "first" collection one kit at a time. I accomplished this task by building ever single kit (some kits several times) for customers accepting un-built kits as payment. Needless, to say, after a while the kit instructions became almost totally unnecessary and strangely enough, I found a market for empty kit boxes & FSM instructions.
Fast forward to today and unfortunately, I've not been building the extraordinary FSM kits as much as I would like, but i have found other activities to keep my model building interests alive and well. A few years ago our DEBEN LLC purchased the structure & ancillary equipment portion of Thomas A Yorke Enterprises (2001 & earlier). Since the Tom Yorke kit line lacked accessories and the California Freight & Details HO Product line became available in 2012, we added on this Detail Parts line to diversify our Scale Model Masterpieces product line.
Although we're no longer in the Out-Of-Production Craftsman Structure Kit market any more, we do still offer some kits available on Consignment. Prices for any kit is per the Seller's Asking Price. Some item prices may be negotiable and others are not. Some kits are the result of a "trade" and are priced to sell quickly; others are not. All that said, please do not consider DEBenLLC OOP kit prices to be "market" prices--kit price is the Seller's asking price. Links to the listings are just below this message. So take a few minutes to browse around and start adding items to your Shopping Cart. You can purchase here with confidence that your information is 100% *secure* and please know that we do not share any of your information with anyone!

Jordan Highway Miniatures (NOS)
When Jordan Jackson passed away in 2015 he left instructions in his Will that his Jordan Highway Miniatures kit business (and associated tooling) was NOT to be sold. As far as we know everything was boxed up and put into storage. Every so often we receive an inquiry from a person offering to Sell and/or Trade Jordan Highway Miniatures kits. We have inspected each and every kit (if the kits seal has been broken/torn) that we offer here.
