Grass clumps

You may have noticed by the lack of posts that I haven't been doing much modelling recently ! Real life has kept me pretty busy and I've been spending more time messing with my other, non railway blog RJRdaydreamer.
Last night I wandered down to the shed for a bit of modelling, during the course of the week I had picked up a packet of Noch grass clumps


Individual tufts of grass. A pair of pliers and some wood glue were all that was needed to stick them down, oh and some patience as there were 70 tufts! The first picture is an overview of where most of them ended up.


I found they looked best grouped a little.



They are very soft to the touch so are pretty good between rails as they move easily out of the way of couplers or wheel flanges.

Nice to see you back in action, that grass looks realistic!

You might want to check out tufts by Silflor Mininatur. They have a range of sizes in each pack. They also have Calcareous tufts which are darker near the base and lighter in colour at the ends of the fibres. I bought some small packs to try from a war games shop. The standard packs are quite large. The small packs have a -S suffix otherwise they are the same part number as the large packs.
