That's a delightful little scene. Well done!

Thanks

No one by that name in the member list, Tim--although he might be registered under some ''pen'' name--before I forced the use of first names. I feel that it is silly to reply to ''Mr CHOO-CHOO'' or the like, when answering questions, etc.

Thanks, Alwin!

Another example of things that the software won't  let me do--OR-- another example of YGYYPF*

Herb,

Thanks, I found Martin, unfortunately he seems to have left the party.

What I was trying to find was any guidance on the 'layering' technique for greenery unfortunately my skillset has not kept up with developments and my static grass tends to look at bit 'flat'

I have started using my stock of Silflor mat, the technique was inspired by the Jim Elster vidblogs on YouTube, whether the result is as good as Martin remains to be seen.

Tim

Another image on the 'horrible' thread - the rating system really sucks.

This is a typical rural small home in Frankenland, just 45kms north of Nurnberg. Not every rural building in Germany looks like a 'gingerbread' house, instead many have a rendered finish and a Roman pantile roof.

The model is almost all card and paper with scrap pieces from kebab skewers, coffee stirrers and drinking straws. The ivy has individual leaves.

Now now Tim...Yes, I hate the "rating system" also. I got the same rating on my old thread...but with over 400K views (no, I didn't look at my thread 400,000 times), there seemed to be a few looking. Maybe they couldn't believe how awful it was or maybe it was something else.
Personally, I like your thread and hope you will keep going. I understand about being in an "unusual" scale, mine is 1:35 and I ain't gonna change a thing!

BTW, you are doing excellent work.

Woodie

The small details make a scene convincing.
