    Default Scenic Express products

    I've used Woodland Scenic products for years.
    With my current layout, I've been thinking about using Scenic Express Ground foam.

    It seems to be a bit cheaper, has a wider variety of color and quantities available. I made a wish list from the MBK website and before pulling the trigger, just thought I'd ask first.

    I have been happy with my purchases from Scenic Express. Granted, All I have really purchased from them has been static grass...

    Thanks Paul, the static grass I've gotten from them was Silfor brand, but I was specifically asking about their ground foam.

    I mix and layer as needed, but I like the Scenic Express stuff. Nice tree flocking. And some of the ground foams have a nice blend of 'stuff' in them. What can I say, I like weeds?

    That's mostly one of their meadow blends.

    Thanks @Ender.

    The way I've used ground foam before is to use it as a base, then come back over it with static grass.
    One of the ground foams I was looking at was the EX866 Farm Pasture Blend. It looks like a decent match for the Woodland Scenics Turf blend.
    Can you tell me, are the Blends made up of Fine foam or is it kind of a mixture of textures?

    Different blends have different things in them. Some are various foams, some have little bits of sticks and lichen, some have little rock things, some have static grass stuff mixed in. Check their website for a more detailed description and bigger photos:

    But like I said, layering works well, even between different brands.

    My section above still needs work, I just haven't figured out what it needs yet.

    I had not heard of Scenic Express before (that I can remember), so Thanks!

    In looking through the website, though, I notice products by Noch and Preiser, though nowhere did I see any product that had a manufacturer's name attached (except as a category). This concerns me since some manufacturers who claim N scale (1:160) size, such as Noch figures, are actually well oversized for the scale. Scale is also not indicated for ballast sizes and many other things.

    So, while I have added them to my bookmarks for a resource, I'll be very careful what I might purchase.
    Cheers!

    Just do a little research before you buy.
    I don't think ballast has ever had a specific scale associated with it, it normally goes by size indicated by a "#" and a number. The higher the number the finer the ballast.
