Product Review: New DVD Making, Casting and Weathering Details

Product Review:

Making, Casting and Weathering Details DVD
By Darryl Huffman

I recently purchased Darryl's latest DVD on model building and about to go downstairs and watch it again. I love it!

Darryl takes us through the steps to make some simple detail items such as a picnic table, lobster traps, birds nests and store room shelves. But its not the details that are important. Its how he constructs them and the techniques surrounding the assembly. He makes it look so easy.

I like his natural approach to keep it simple. Anyone can watch this video and go to the shop and reproduce what he's done. There is way more than $20 worth of information and you don't have to scan over ads like a magazine.

It is of great value and I highly recommend it. The filming still leaves a lot to be desired, but it is tough to get close ups of some of this. His wife's hands make a guest appearance and they are much easier on the eyes than Darryl's. But all in all it is a fantastic skill builder!

Since I don't sell advertising I can say whatever I this one gets 4 out of 5 stars!

You can buy it on Ebay or Dr. Ben's website where I bought my copy.


  1. WHAT! No comments about Darryl using the Doctor Ben's Weathering Stains throughout the two-hour video?! The pityness of it all. OUTRAGUious!!! However, and ironically enough, this is the very first time that I've been called Doctor Ben's, Uncle Ben's, Richard Benjamin's, & Benjamin all within a two-hour video. Clearly I am a man of many names!

  2. Heck, I already use Dr. Ben's products, so there was no news there. I do need to get some Driftwood from you, though. I love the Benjamin comment...HE IS MY BEST FRIEND FOREVER, GOOD OLD RICHARD BENJAMIN. But I've done clinics before and it is hard to concentrate and talk at the same time.


Thanks for your comment!
