Doctor Ben's Weathered Rust Weathering Solution 4ozDBZ1154 - Doctor Ben's Weathering Solution
#1154 Ready-To-Use Weathering Solution for Wood, Plastic, Hydrocal
©, Metal & Much More-4oz Jar & 8oz, too!

  When I first began building Fine Scale Miniatures kits  (manufactured by George Sellios) many years ago, the part that I enjoyed the most was the weathering. Nothing irked me more than to build a model in a brand new, pristine condition. I began looking for something more that what the FSM instructions offered. Don't get me wrong, I owe a great deal of what I learned about building models from building early Thomas A. Yorke kits, Model Masterpieces kits, Builders in Scale kits, Timberline kits; heck, there's even a thing or two to learn from building the Campbell kits.  CLICK HERE or image at right for more information ...

Got Stumps?

 Tree Stumps are one of the most overlooked and taken-for-granted details in quality scale diorama. Often times a tree stump place in just the right spot is the difference between a picture of a model and fooling the viewer into believing that they are looking at the real thing!

  Our Scale Model Masterpieces "Stumps" come from a world of previous manufacturers including the amazing Scott Perry, California Freight & Details Company and other to be incorporated into our SMM product line!

  Most of our "Stumps" are cast in high quality Labstone also know as Dental Stone Gypsum and are available in sizes as small as 1/8 of an inch to extra large for those really big requirement. We offer a staining and weathering tutorial in our website BLOG at Staining & Weathering Tree Stumps with Doctor Ben's, Blog Archives, August 2015. Take a look and you will find that we share all the secrets you need to create the most realistic looking stumps that you have ever seen.

  About Doctor Ben's Weathering Stain Products in 4oz Jars

 For years Richard E. Bendever has used these versatile non-petroleum Weathering Stains to stain, finish & weather the many craftsman and scratchbuilt models he had been constructing for many, many customers. So when that once famous—now defunct—Floquil® Flo-Stain product line DBZ1097 - Doctor Ben's Weathering Stainstarted going for more than a $100 a bottle on eBay in the late 1980s; Richard, now Doctor Ben’s, decided offer an Aged Driftwood Weathering Stain as an exact color match to the 1983 Floquil Driftwood stain. As this amazing Doctor Ben's product became increasingly popular all over the world, additional Weathering Stain colors were slowly created until there were enough for one Weathering Set; and then another; and then another set. It has been several years now and boy the Doctor Ben's Weathering Stain color selection has grown by leaps and bounds!

  Starting in 1991, Doctor Ben's has offered a non-petroleum replacement for the long defunct Floquil Flo-Stains© products; especially Driftwood and the rest of the "woodsey" stains. Literally thousands of Aged Driftwood Weathering Stains have been sold in additional to many other Weathering Stain colors to many thousands of satisfied customers.SMM3101 - Scale Model Masterpieces Craftsman Kit

  Not everyone sees the "original" Floquil Driftwood as a true color representation of how they see that the color of Driftwood should be and that's OK which is why Doctor Ben's offers the Mossy Driftwood; less blue-gray and more fungi-green. An overwhelming number of customers queried Doctor Ben's as to possibly having a 'mossy green' driftwood color. Well, even though this has happen quite by accident, we are always looking to "Grow Our Product Line" with a new Weathering Stain. So be sure to share your suggestions and perhaps it will happen!

So, like thousands of hobbyists before you, many modelers became tired of the costly, thimble-sized bottle, smelly petroleum based weathering and painting products that seemingly evaporated overnight. The good news for you is that Doctor Ben’s has now brought to you a line of easy-to-use, environmentally-friendly, finishing and weathering stains in four ounce re-sealable jars that are Color-Fast and are Ready-To-Use when you are!
