More New Product Announcements!


Concrete Backdrop Kit #2 "Scratch Buildin' Series" Yorke/Scale Model Masterpieces 1:87/HO 

  Nope; you're not seeing a repeat of a DEBenLLC Newsletter New Product Announcement from a few weeks ago. This is the second Concrete Backdrop kit in our "Scratch Buildin' Series".

 You may recognize this impressive kit as part of our newest HO Scale G-Street Warehouse kit. But as we all know, pike space is limited; so why not cut it in half and make it a Backdrop Structure! Our patterns reflected the uneven and roughwooden form board impressions as well as "oozing" concrete from between them so typical of cast concrete structures of the 1920s.

  The castings for this backdrop kit are from our "original" Thomas A Yorke Ent. masters which reflect all of the detail of this structure and much more. This kit is composed of Labstone castings including the partial roof with parapet wall and "tar paper" roofing already cast in place - simply paint & weathering with Doctor Ben's Weathering Stains. Grandt window castings and Scale Model Masterpieces details (listed below), Cyclone Roof Vents and Small Loading Dock are included along with our usual comprehensive instructions and plans plus a color photograph for a truly easy to assemble kit.

BTW For all you O & S scalers saying, what about me? This structure is larger enough to "adapt" for O & S scale. Stay tuned!

  The scale 108' x 20' size will dwarf two 50' box cars along side! CLICK the above image to go to the website for more information and Options for this structure! As part of our Upcoming "Scratch Buildin' Series", we will offer all four walls, roof, loading docks and doors of this kit for individual purchase. Interested? Let us know!If you have a question, Just Askkk


 Coming Soon for O Scale! "Victorian Brick Building a.k.a Milk Depot Kit"

by Thomas A. Yorke Enterprises/Scale Model Masterpieces O/On3/On2/On30

  This little Victorian brick structure makes a fine on-line industry for your pike. Tom Yorke originally used this structure as a milk collection station (a/k/a The Milk Depot). Local dairy farmers would bring in their milk during the wee hours of the morning. The collected milk would then go by rail to a creamery many miles away.

  Weather this kit is used for this purpose or for another type of co-op, etc., you may agree that it does build into a charming little structure.

This *original* Thomas A. Yorke kit (now Scale Model Masterpieces) has been give a renewed life with lots of updates and additions including the instructions, wood ramp & Precision Cut one-piece trusses! And, you will be able to select which style of Doctor Ben's Shingles, Corrugated Metal, or Copper roofing that you would like for this fine model. Stay Tuned for more Updates!


Scale Model Masterpieces (formerly Cal Freight) 

 Roof Top Access Hatch (3pcs-scale 3 feet square) 

N / HO / S / O Scales

  If the roof top of your structure is too high to reach with an extension ladder, the building is going to need an access to the roof to repair leaks and service vents and various equipment.

Detail Parts are composed of UNFINISHED/UNASSEMBLED Labstone Castings & Finish Required. Assembly using most plastic cements and painting may be completed by hand or an air brush. 


Doctor Ben's Weathering Pigments

Doctor Ben's How-To #3 booklet included in every Weathering Pigment Set! 

  The Doctor Ben’s Industrial Weathering Pigments are not just a powder or a chalk: they are the real industrial pigments, with polymer binder adhesives built in—that enables them to stick to anything. Really! Fortunately, when you are finished, the pigments do wash off your hands with ordinary soap and water (the foaming liquid hand soap works the best), but you might want to wear old clothes or a cover-up.
  Do you like paying $5.00 for a half ounce of these very same products? Good news, Doctor Ben's has now brought to you a line of easy-to-use, environmentally-friendly, finishing and weathering pigments in two ounce re-sealable jars that are Color Fast and are Ready-To-Use when you are!

  Have you built a kit lately that recommended Doctor Ben's Products and it wasn't us? That's because we have a program where we provide our products to kit manufacturers to try when constructing their kit and if that manufacturer like our product, they include that information in their instructions! Cool idea, huh?
