Martin, the green looks great as the green tends to lighten as it ages.

Martin, if you want a softer green, you can tone it down with any red/rusty/brown color before making it lighter. The Naples Yellow RED tone available from the dutch artist color brands like Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Talens etc is a very fine color for mixing with green to age, warm and lighten it at the same time.

That looks like some great material, I assume the static grass is for the grassmaster? what lengths does it come in? As for the leaves, do they actually look like individual leaves? would you be using this on trees or just falling down on ground stuff?

Hi Les,
static grass is indeed for my grassmaster, comes in lenghts of 1 , 2 , 4.5 and 6.5 mm. Realy prefer Polak over Noch because of their more natural looking colors. As for the leaves the look ok to me, nice colors and I use'm on the ground as for my trees and bushes. They produce fine, medium and coarse and they look like this

YES! Very effective scenery. I like the shade of green u choose for the traven/residence too.

It's only make-believe

Polak!

It really looks great!

I had never heard of Polak before. You say they have more natural colours than Noch. But the size of the leaves. Is this just for O scale modelers or would it work on a HO scale layout as well?

Hi Anders, they have 3 sizes in this leave material. I only use the medium and coarse at the moment. Brighter leaves in the picture are Noch and they are made for H0. So I do think that the fine and medium leaves would work out in H0. They even make 1mm static grass, about garden hight in H0 (if you don't mow too often )
