    Ground cover is a mix of static grasses and ground foam , some dirt and rocks with most trees coming from Moose Creek .

    Mike, when compiling your post, go to the advance editor.
    There you can click on the image and change the size it’s inserted at.

    No fair! I come to Nscale.net to avoid exposure to narrow-gauge fever!

    Nicely done, @mikec6201!

    Also it looking absolutely amazing helps too. What lush natural scenery!

    The variety in your grasses looks amazing. Something I need to go back and add to my field of weeds.

    Not exactly. HOn3 is 10.5mm in gauge, 3.5mm to the foot being the outcome of 1:87.1. It's HO scale but definitely not 9mm gauge and certainly not N scale. So while I appreciate the modeling, I'm wondering what it's doing on an N scale forum.

    Will we see On18 modeling on here next, just because the gauge is 9mm?

    You can post about other scales in the general rail forum.

    Which runs contrary to calling the site nScale.net, doesn't it? What say you, @Bryan?

    Ideally this would be something for ones Blog.
    But as the General forum is for stuff that is “vaguely rail related”, this isn’t necessarily excluded.
    Whilst it remains a single thread on the subject that is added to rather than multiple threads, it can stand.

    Thanks, Steve. It's excellent modeling to be sure, but the site's moniker says "By N scalers, for N scalers."

    However, it's not my site.

    Paul, as previously stated, this would preferably be a Blog post... but since this is “vaguely rail related”, and we’re tolerant not forum nazis, I’ve allowed it to remain... it’s not like HO or G doesn’t get the occasional mention or reference.

    I understand. At least it's HOn3.

    If it was hoN3, it would be better?
