Happy New Year from all of us at Microscale! There is a great sense of excitement when starting a new year. Many great new products are coming this 2012 and to kick the new year off check out the new releases for Military and Railroad lines. We are still running our adhesive web special with the enhanced MicroWeld formula. This product is far superior to the original MicroWeld formula. It has a bit longer dry time then most MEK based adhesives, which can be advantageous at times for model building. Time to buckle down and get a few resolutions seen to fruition!

You might've seen Microscale's ad in the past issue of Model Railroad Hobbyist Magazine. Be sure to look for us in the December issue too!

Modeling with Microscale

Craig Zeni 


The SEABOARD Magor hopper was assembled from an ExactRail kit and painted with Model Master "Steel" enamel; this makes a fine looking slightly aged aluminum. Lettering is (mostly) with Microscale 87-1007.  The non-Microscale part are the two 'caution' decals a friend made...they're in block lettering and not the RR Roman as in the original set.   


This set has been unavailable and is scheduled to be reprinted soon and updated to account for the "CAUTION" lettering described by Craig. One may use 87-1336 for the block lettering "CAUTION" data, if you have an original set.
