In-Box Review
Autumn Cattle Pastures

by: Frederick Boucher [ JPTRR ]


Originally published on:
KitMaker Network

Grasses and tufts, leaves, trees and flowers are all available. They include the seasons from winter, spring, summer and autumn, early and late periods, the grass being 2mm, 5mm & 8 mm in height. The matts are available with and without weeds. Flowering meadows, prairies and moorlands are produced.

Cow Pastures with Tufts I present to you. It is a 12" X 19" mat covered with a base of 2mm tall short grass, in which tufts of 6mm height are randomly placed all over. Silflor® also offers a cattle pasture mat covered with dung plies, a.k.a. ‘cow patties’( or “Molehills”, if you are squeamish.)

I will not attempt to describe the technical characteristics of this pasture matt. The photos are worth a thousand words. Illustrated is this product photographed out of doors on a sunny late autumn afternoon, upon which I set the following models:
• 1/35 KV-85
• 1/48 Fokker Triplane and pilot
• 1/72 Pfalz D.XII
• 1/72 Japanese aircraft service vehicles
• HO (1/87) horses and wagon
• HO 40' boxcar

All Silflor® products blend with each other. Practically any temperate landscape can be reproduced with incredible realism. Silflor’s® only drawback is the price. RECOMMEND.

I thank David of the Southern Switchmen for generously loaning me this product to share with you.

About Frederick Boucher (JPTRR)
FROM: TENNESSEE, UNITED STATES

I'm a professional pilot with a degree in art. My first model was an AMT semi dump truck. Then Monogram's Lunar Lander right after the lunar landing. Next, Revell's 1/32 Bf-109G...cried havoc and released the dogs of modeling! My interests--if built before 1900, or after 1955, then I proba...
