    Nice selection of grasses and ground covers. Could I recommend you get some batting for quilts, this is good for making small hedges etc

    This is what I would recommend ;


    Cut some small lengths about 4" wide ;


    Then peel into thin layers as such and teased apart ;


    This can the be spray painted a camouflage green and your Woodland Scenics 'course turf' glued to it using hair spray. This is now ready for forming bushes etc.

    Cheers, Gary.

    In this current heatwave you can take it right down to 7.5 tog which will mean you have enough to do Dundee Paul's as well and still have heaps over ready for your next extension to Luib Bridge. :avatar::avatar::avatar:

    I has sent away for a scenics " pack " of various grasses. Spring, summer, autumn and winter all with 2, 4 and 6mm varieties of static grasses. They arrived today so I'll post them up later.

    Plenty variety for Luib Bridge.

    Cheers

    Toto

    I appreciate I am a bit late for this piece of advice, but check out www.geekgaming.co.uk, and then just search "APS". It links you to products that are sold by a company of a bloke I follow on YouTube (Lukes APS (Affordable Paint Service)) which are fantastic. He does both foam and sawdust flocks, clump and 2 in 1, static grasses, snow effects, reeds, foliage. Everything you would need really, and they are much more affordable than WS. Just my opinion of course, but I have used them on my dio recently and they really are brilliant!

    Cheers,

    Dom
