Has it really been six years since we posted a bulletin? Guess we should fire our webmaster! Hey, wait, that's us. Okay, we will try to do better.


08-01-10 - NEW E-MAIL

10/4/07 - MORE LASERWOOD PLANKING

A customer called and asked about four foot wide boardwalk. We should have pointed out that there are several strips of that width on the random cut panels. Instead, we custom-cut a 4 ft. width panel, one thing lead to another, and these are now available across the board. Use them for boardwalks and fencing.

Sheets are 3-3/4" x 7" with in N-scale, otherwise 6" x 12", with 1/4"-1/2" border.

We are adding generic WOOD DECK PLANKING/SIDING to our LaserWood line. Not just some ordinary planking either. These come with nailhead detail, that a model builder would spend hours if he/she were to emboss them by hand.

The planking comes in 6", 8", 12" and random widths and are cut to 8 foot lengths, random lengths (4', 6', 10' and 12'), or left plain without cuts. Use them for decking, fencing, siding, platforms or what have you. Available in HO, S and O. Sheets are 6" x 12" with 1/4"-1/2" border.

12-01-06 PRICE ADJUSTMENTS

Unfortunately the the price of our chain has gone up with our costs rising nearly 50 percent in some cases we are told by the (new) management due to the cost of metal and the fact that they had not adjusted their price for eight years.


9-27-06 LASERWOOD STAIR STRINGERS ADDED

We know this is nuts but we found we needed some steeper stair stringers for a project with an 8 inch rise. So like we did with the 7 inch (we'll now call standard), we're offering them in three tread lengths: 9, 10 or 11 inches.

Note that we have increased the quanities to six in each package and adjusted the price for uniformities sake. We will be doing the same for the standard packages too with the price actually going down!

9-27-06 NEW SLATE COLOR

Unfortunately our supplier of paper has announced the discontinue of one of our Slate Shingle stock colors. We bought all the had, several years worth, but fear the other colors might go too. Well, we'll deal with that when it happens.
Meanwhile, they mistakenly sent us the wrong color that were going to send back but then thought we might as well add it to our line. It's a very light color that can be stained, painted or weathered as the modeler desires.

6-1-06 NEW LASER PRODUCTS

Shorter wider versions of our most popular TrueWood Rustic Shingles have been added. We're also working on some steeper versions of our LaserWood stair stringers (8" tall steps), treads and construction jigs. This has caused us to adjust prices and quanities (more for less) on our existing stair stringers.

  • Part #525   TrueWood Wide Shingles (HO/S)
  • Part #725   TrueWood Short Reveal Shingles (O)
  • Part #825   TrueWood Short Reveal Shingles (S)

LaserWood products to be posted shortly....


5-11-06 PRICE ADJUSTMENTS

Due to wear and tear on our embossing machines and the escalating price of metal we have adjusted the price of our wider corrugated and rib seam.


5-1-06 VERY BUSY!

We are busy updating all our laser files to run on the new machine and creating new ones. All the EE kits are back on line as are most of our laser-cut items. We are also working on the long awaited limited edition kit no. 12, The National Belle Mine. And we are working on two new kits for C. C. Crow, The NP Hotel at Easton and the Durango Roundhouse in O scale.


2-23-06 NEW LASER ARRIVES

Our new Epilog laser arrives.


1-12-06 NEW LASER COMING

We are retiring our old laser after 13 years of great service. It was one of the first in the hobby! During the transition certain laser-cut items will be in short supply. We've marked them as "LOW" on the price/availability list.


09-07-05 MID-OCTOBER SHOP CLOSURE

Our shop will be closed October 7th returning October 24, 2005. We will be unable to answer phone calls or e-mails until our return. We apologize for any inconvenience.

  • Kit #616   THE MINE HEADFRAME (HO)
  • Kit #565   THE ORE TRESTLE (HOn12-18)


11-10-04 MORE BAD NEWS

The cost of our white metal alloy has nearly doubled in price. We are forced to adjust our prices accordingly. This effects our HO scale details sets, O scale figures and parts. We are holding the prices of our Evening Express kits for the time being. We've noticed increases in brass tubing, wire and chain but are holding the price there too. We don't know about our metal roofing/siding- We can only take so much bad news at one time...


11-10-04 LASERWOOD STAIR STRINGERS ADDED

Hey, there is some good news! We forgot to tell you we're adding a bunch of laser cut wooden stair stringers to our line.
Originally, we had just one, part #7204, a typical single-story, 7" rise by 10" run available only in O scale. Why should they have all the fun?
Not only have we done them in HO and S, but we're doing them in three different slopes (9, 10 and 11 inch runs on 7 inch rises) and two-story lengths as well. You should be able to find the right one for your model now.

11-06-04 ? NEW EVENING EXPRESS KITS ?

Where are those new Evening Express kits? They are still not out.
Sorry to say we've encounted some major problems with our computer system involving the purchase of a new Apple, new operating system and applications. And learning them. Classic small business problems. Poor alignment of the moon. We're working on it.

06-05-04 NEW EVENING EXPRESS KITS

We are adding two new Evening Express kits, #615 The Ore Tipple and #616 The Mine Headframe, shortly (July 1st). These are the first two new Builders In Scale kits under C. C. Crow. Okay, we cheated a bit and borrowed them from previous limited run kits- to help us with the transition. The pilot models will be on display at the 2004 NMRA National Train Show, July 9-11, here in Seattle.
Drop by and see us at booth #325.

We are working on three new kits, four if you count the 72 ft. Brick DRG&W Roundhouse in Sn3 we are helping C. C. Crow with.

These should hit pay dirt this fall and/or winter. Details to be announced shortly.
