“I take old foam pillows, and take pieces from it and add to a blender, then I add a little water, then I add my color and a little elmers glue. blend it up good, strain it then put it on parchment paper you know the kind they use for baking. then I squish it together and let it dry. It will be formed so you can tear of pieces of clumped material.
A very good material to make rushes and very cors grass around pond/lakes is deer hair. it comes in slighley diffrent shades fron dark brown to very light brown and for a 5′ x 5′ peice from a fly fishing / tyeing shop will set you back about £3.00 (one of my friends is a game keeper at a country house, so we split the entire hid between the two of use, thats a LOT of dear hair)
“Thought I would share this with you. The old Tri-ang trains were notorious for poor running especially scale speed until a guy on youtube (chambs123) came up with the idea of upgrading the old Tri-ang controller. I just completed the project myself and thought I woudl share it with you. Hav eyou ever seen a Tri-ang or Hornby run this slow or smoothly? Who needs DCC? And you can run about 12 locos off the one controller.
Keep ’em coming.
