Hi Nick

Grass looks good. Did you use a static grass applicator or just sprinkled?

Jim ..... I used a puffer type applicator which does work ....kinda, seemed to puff it everywhere lol, after that I went over the groundwork and thickened it up a bit manually, multiple tufts placed close to each other....too an hour but good results.

Back again...

No sooner than I had posted up this am. I did some more....I got my 12mm static of a light brown colour which I made small clumps betwixt my fingers , dipped them in PVA and "planted" I wanted a late summer type look, bleached out. ..If ya get me lol hence the application of more light straw type colours in mixes and clumps.

Hope you likey

You may notice I have also worked another layer on the road surface. I sifted the finest sterilised soil, ground some chalk pastels, yellow, brown & black, blended the soil/pastels checked the blend, a bit dark, added a little more white & yellow to get the right tone, kept a bit back to dabble over finished Zis & trailer to match groundwork, this was also blended in around the T34/76.
