    Default Free Model Railroader Newsletter Article: “Add realistic tall grass to your model rai

    The current Model Railroader newsletter contains the “free” article: Add realistic tall grass to your model railroad scenery.

    http://www.trains.com/mrr/default.aspx?c=a&id=708

    While no scale is mentioned in the article I suspect it is based on an HO scale layout. After all, it is Model Railroader! However, I see no reason why the method explained here should not work for all scales!

    The article was first published in August 2006.

    Down at the bottom it mentioned the author models in S scale. The grasses would be a lot taller in N, of course. Still it looks like a neat technique and one I'd like to try. I think I remember some folks here on Nscale.net who built applicators from dollar store electronic flyswatters...

    I especially liked how the author described layering colors of static flock to achieve the effect.

    Good spotting, and yes, it is correct - Peter Ross works in Sn31/2 rather than N, and is regarded as one of the senior members of the New Zealand MR 'establishment'.

    The article appeared in the local MR magazine the 'New Zealand Model Railway Journal' some two or so years ago, and can, I'm sure be modified for use by N-scaler's..

    Thanks BryanC for bringing it to our attention.
