Here is another photo of an area of the layout just completed.
Static grass applicator still giving sterling service – I wouldn’t be without it! Without doubt one of the best tools I ever bought for my model railway.
More Pics from the layout and see below ( 8/10/2015 ) for the practice run.
28/3/2016 Hi Colin, We met at the Calne show earlier this year and I purchased a Static Grass Applicator and a variety of grasses to experiment with... which I did, and then after making some choices for a small OO 'photo box' layout, I thought you'd be interested in some photographs of the results, which you are most welcome to share on your website.
The layout didn't need huge amounts of static grass, but I'm very pleased with the results indeed, and so easy to do too. I primarily used the huge 6mm straw blend, as these are quite wild and unkempt areas, with 1mm and 2mm autumn grass dropped between.
I'm absolutely delighted with the applicator - it was a pleasure to use.
Thanks very much for all your advice - I used Option 2 to get between the rails.
I look forward to meeting you again at Peterborough but in the meantime I will send you further photos when I get more experience!
7/10/2015 UPDATE It's amazing where DoubleO Scenics products can take you. This customer has now started his own business supplying terrain and accessories for Wargamers. Click on this link to take you to our links page where you'll find his website. 11/4/2015 This customer purchased one of our Static Grass Applicators & Grass from his local model shop and I was invited to give a talk on Static Grass application techniques at one of their club night meetings. There follows, edits of the e-mail and pictures he kindly sent.
"My system of fields is meant for war gaming. As a vehicle moves into a field the sections of field are simply moved behind the vehicle as it moves. The darker green static grass is late Summer 2mm, with 4mm straw and the lighter green is early Summer 2mm with 4mm straw. The random foliage is a combination of your static grass tufts on dabs of PVA, as per your suggestion, with some Woodland scenic clump foliage for variation. I have made some meadows and rows of crops. Everything was glued down with neat PVA. The wedge shaped pieces are to match the shape of fields around my 45 degree road junctions."
Here's a slideshow of the pictures.
