Hi Harold,
Thanks, I just made copies of all your info and pics on the subject!! I'm just getting into scenery and am always looking for ideas that will work for me. Heaven knows that with a basement sized triple deck layout, I'll need all the help I can get!!



Look out for #1, but don't step in #2!

Nice take on the grass applicator. I have always enjoyed your how-to's and information on your website.

Thanks Louis,

Looking at the device some more I would slide the strainer handle under the "z" in the center placing the strainer at a right angle to the handle. The strainer would then be right in front of you while applying the flock.

I can't understand how the electrical part kills flys. They have to bridge the bars to the grid which is a bigger gap than a house fly. It is too bulky to swat them.
