1. Weathering is my core business. I usually have a backlog. It's typically a few weeks but manufacturer's releases push schedules outwards. Release schedules (as you know) are not always predictable. Your patience is appreciated. I work 7 days a week and extra hours as demand warrants.
2. All prices on this website are USD$ unless otherwise specified. Canadian and Australian orders are in CAD$ on weathering and Rapido Products unless specified otherwise. Prices on goods and services do not include Goods and Services Tax/Harmonized Sales Tax (Canada only) and shipping/insurance.
3. Prices below are for HO scale weathering only: HO scale detail part add-ons, decaling, paint matching, DCC/LED installs... etc are extra (as quoted). For N scale weathering please use a 0.7 rate multiplier: for G gauge, please use a 1.3 rate multiplier.
4. All models are top coated with polyurethane (I do not use a brand called "Dullcoat").
5. Only professional grade hobby materials and fine art materials are used on your models. I ONLY use materials that will stand the test of time.
6. Weathering colors are my own custom blends using 40 years of color mixing experience for optimal presentation and prototype fidelity! I always custom mix weathering tones to suit your model!
7. I ship worldwide. References are available on request.
8. Repairs to older weathering/weathering by others are extra (when even possible).
9. I am an approved ESU LokSound dealer. I sell (and install) ESU LokSound DCC upgrade kits and programming with LED lighting and ESU sugarcube speakers. In my opinion, ESU Loksound decoders are THE best; accordingly I sell/install no other DCC brands. I am formally trained and highly experienced in soldering and electronics troubleshooting. Electronic work is quoted on request once work scope is known. Weathering work takes priority over stand-alone decoder installs.
