First Week of Fall Flash Sale!      

  We'll guess who forgot to have a First Day of Fall Flash Sale?! My apologies ... things around here are just so hectic with all the casting, making products, speaking with Customers on the phone as well as Business Buyer Prospects, the "planned" Flash Sale totally slipped my mind. Not to worry though, we're making this a 48-ish Hour Event with Coupon Code and everything. Simply scroll down thought this Newsletter and all the information is there--WHEW!
  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. We did post a question in last Wednesday's Newsletter, so here is another question: When staining clapboard siding panels, will the stain warp the precut pieces? 
  REPLY:  It depends on the type of wood and size. Some wood is more sensitive and even Rubbing Alcohol will cause slight warp. And yes, I always stain both sides whenever possible for two reasons: Staining both sides seals the the wood preventing it from the humidity in a room which can be causing things to happen unexpectedly to the model.
 And two, staining both sides of the wood (or all four sides of strip wood) pretty much eliminates warp age which is typically caused by the wet stain "on only one side of the wood" drying and thus, shrinking and pulling the wood into a curved or warped state..
    Pretty simple, huh? Send us some pics of the finish model we can post on our website! Got more questions? ASK! See you in the Hobby Room ...
