  2022 Half Over & Going Fast ... We’ve got lots of thing going on including a behind the scenes of our www.debenllc.com, DrBens.com & ScaleModelMasterpieces.com (coming on-line soon) websites. Long story short we’re finding that interested folks like seeing what products come with each business! We shared the image at right on Facebook nine years ago and the number one question: "Really?

 Thinking about Wandering Outside? Not me! After we "finally" caught up from our trip to Maryland & Delaware, Debbie is already talking about going back sometime in late July for my birthday! We’re hoping gas prices will head back to normal levels by then. Fingers crossed!   A number of modelers have been patiently waiting for us to re-Stock a number of kits. Unfortunately, it’s just Debbie and me until late July and the same rising gas prices that I just mentioned is compelling folks to stay home and busy themselves...

  Summer Is Now Weeks Away! For the past couple of weeks we have had some pleasant low humidity/seventy /eighty degree days. This week AND just like this time last year some potentially heavy rains and temperatures are already climbing onto the 90s…YUK!   We have one new high school Art student who began learning the ropes this summer. Hopefully this high school senior will begin teaching a “Junior” in the Fall… unless we find a buyer over the Summer. Know anyone? We’ll pay you $2,500 ...
