Specials and Blowouts
Help us get this stuff outta here!
To put it bluntly, we have stuff. Rather than just keep it forever, we're going to put some of that stuff up for sale on this page. You may even see some stuff that isn't model horse related.
Some items will be one-time-only, some items are experimental and if they seem to sell well we'll carry them as a regular item, and some items might just be new and I'd like to point them out (and tweak the price). I've made a tool to keep this page up to date like the resins availability page, and unlike the neglected former specials page.
We're also listing what still remained from that old "specials" page, somewhere down below.
Just note the Lot Number or Item Number when ordering! First-come, First-serve; the minimum order of $10.00 applies as well as the usual shipping and handling charges.

Various - Spots & Studs - $1.00
We've finally got a selection of spots/studs in 1/8" diameters, as well as 1/4" stars. Rather than try to wax poetic about what they look like, please check them out here
They're all priced at $1.35/pkg, but for those folks that look here let's call them at an even dollar. Be sure to use the prefixed part numbers below:
100-HS11s - flat(ish) silver color
100-HS11g - flat(ish) gold color
100-HS21s - domed silver color
100-HS21g - domed gold color
100-HS61s - flat(ish) silver color, plated steel, 2 long prongs
100-HS71s - domed silver color, plated steel, 2 long prongs
100-HS71b - domed silver color, brass, 2 long prongs
100-HS81s - stars, silver color
100-HS81s - stars, gold color
HD11 - Mini-Hold Wax - $3.00/pot
We've switched our basic sticky wax to the Bard's product, and it's really sticky. It may be too sticky for some people's tastes, and we have some of the Mini-Hold Wax that's not nearly as sticky. Personally, I don't think it's quite as sticky as it used to be, but it's stiffer than the Bard's stuff and might work better for some folks. Let's go a little cheaper on these, $3 versus $3.50.
TL801 - Pin Vise - $7.75
This is the thing you need when you want to hold something with a really small diameter, like tiny drillls, headless pins or pins from the wrong end, tiny pokey things for making tiny holes (in leather, thin metal, or your pop-can alcohol stove), or even holding the rod for winding your own tiny custom jump rings. I'll even see about including a piece of really fine drill rod so you can try that last thing if you don't have enough to drive you nuts.
No photo yet., but what I described here is how I made the very small rings in the photo below - the smaller rings were wound around a regular straight pin. They are *very* easy to lose.
Various - New Concho Sheets - Intro Sale! $5.00/sheet
We now have almost all of the new concho sheets, the ones with a single pattern across the whole sheet in various sizes. (Still trying to get the etching guy to make those diamond sets!)They're $7.50/sheet, but let's keep booting them out at $5.00 a sheet for the people that actually look at this list(!) Be sure to use the modified part numbers below.
There's seven different new sheets, and we've got six of them now.
You can see the artwork and info here.
500-CA147s - Brocade, nickel
500-CA150s - Southwestern, nickel
500-CA154s - Filligree (open) Star, nickel
500-CA155s - Star - Rope Edge, nickel
500-CA201s - Round/Rope-Edge nickel
500-CA205s - Heart, nickel
- - Limited to stock on hand.
LK2bon - Bone White Pliver - $2.75 - 5"x 6" cut piece
This looks like a chrome-dyed (?) top grain, like the black and brown skivers we recently can't get. Thin - a bit thicker than skiver but thinner than the usual leathers, supple, and a very nice hand. Most likely a one-time-only item, but if you buy some and really want more please let me know.
Shown with black and tan lace on a copy paper background to attempt to illustrate color - it's *not* stark white.
125-HD16 - Tiny Bull Snaps - $1.25 pkg of 2
These are a regular catalog item now, and I'll be getting some gold-colored ones eventually.
-This being the Specials Page, how about we knock the price down to $1.25 for a little while? Be sure to use the "125-HD16" part number when ordering
-At least they look more like bull snaps than anything else we have, and they fit 3/32 inch lace (pictured) *snugly* when closed - left open they're a nice fit with 1/8 inch lace, but it could slip off. These don't require a jump ring to attach your lead, they have an open hook on the end that you push closed. I don't think it's suitable for bending open and closed repeatedly, and if you want we can probably push the hook closed for you before shipping (ask). If I can find a closed loop version I'll pick some up., but there's no sign of any now.
Silver plated brass, shinier than photo because of my greasy fingerprints.
0.450" overall length with hook open, 0.330" body length, 0.144" body width, 0.186" snap width not including lever.
LK7nro - Roughout, Natural - $1.25 - 5"x 6" cut piece
Lambskin roughout. Vegetable tanned lambskin, fine grained and supple, ranges in thickness from fairly thin to fairly thick - say, a hair under 2 oz to about 3 oz(if you have a preference, please specify when ordering). Good for general scale rougout use - saddles, chaps, maybe moccassins, boots, or possibly scale garments and bags.
Knocked the price down to a buck and a quarter...
