    Default n scale planter

    If you look closely, on the platform between the loco and the first car is a planter with a cactus in it, care to guess the origin of the planter?

    .22 pellet from air rifle upside down of course. Just goes to show there are all kinds of everyday items that can be re-purposed. I would bet that .177 pellets would make good bollards at a wharf scene.

    Another idea for a sticky thread: The Frugal N Scale Modeler. Use of unusual items or items from other scale for N scale.

    I used to be a varsity marksman in highschool and that looks pretty familiar. It's an air rifle pellet, I actually used to shoot that style exclusively.

    I recognized the pellet. What I would like to know is how you did that excellent cactus.

    I found the box, these have to painted otherwise they don't look too good. I hand made a few cactus too but these are pretty nice for the price.
    they were under 10 dollars I think and a good size for n-scale.
