Here Comes  Pumpkin Lattes!

  Yes, you guessed it; Fall is our *VERY* favorite Season of the year! The A/C units run less frequently, the lawn growth is slowing down, Hurricane Season is winding down, and the Pumpkin Latte is back!
 That said, it’s been a very busy Summer which is probably a result of a lot of folks either out of work or now working from home. I find it very relaxing to construct & weather models which could be what some folks are doing during their work-from-home Break Time! We've still got a bunch of casting to get caught up on as our non-aluminum Corrugation (HO & N scales) including Corrugation. We spoke with some more folks interested in our business since the last Newsletter and there are still quite a few interested prospects (see investment opportunity below) despite the Pandemic.  Our High School students who are now in face-2-face class rooms are enjoying being back at school. Our Georgia County (1 of 149 counties) has almost 180,000 Kindergarten through 12 grade students and mask wearing is required of all students plus faculty, administration, bus drivers, and maintenance staff. As we wrap up the second month of this school semester the Positive Test Rate for our county is 0.36% which is pretty good compared to the other 148 counties.

Got Weathering Questions?
  We receive lots of weathering & finish questions every week and every so often we receive a question that i feel other modelers may be interested in reading:
  "I have some of your black weathering solution/stain. I want to use it (or something more effective) to highlight the seams and gaps around the various panels and doors on a Galloping Goose model without leaving much residue on the main part of the panels."
 REPLY:  After stirring the Doctor Ben's product real well, use a spoon to move some of the Doctor Ben's into a small cup and add half as many spoons of Isopropyl Alcohol (70%) into the same cup and stir. The use a small round brush to pick up the mixture and aim the brush into the seams and gaps around the various panels and doors.
  Wet a clean paper towel with the alcohol to wipe off any Doctor Ben's from where you don't want it. Allow it to dry and if it's not dark enough, repeat until you like what you see.
  Pretty simple, huh? Send us some pics of the finish model we can post on our website! Got more questions? ASK!
