I have a HO mat that is supposed to represent field grass. However it's too tall for a N scale pasture as you can see by the cow on the left. The cow on the right had her field shaved with a electric razor to give the grass a more realistic height. Not sure what this will do to the long term life of my razor but as we all know the layout is far more important then the razor is!
Hi Mike; You can buy replacement cutter heads for most electric razors for quite a bit less than a whole new razor. You could have one the cuter head you already used on the layout for the layout and a new one for your face. L&N nut Jon
This is the type that you use for trimming breads and mustatches, not for actually shaving. You can buy them new for $20 and this one is at least 10 years old Jon so no real loss if it does mess it up.
You have heard the expression "the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence" ? Cows must believe it as the grass under and just on the other side of the fence seems to be the grass they eat first.
Really great to see you back at the layout, I like the idea you have of building in sections, got me thinking. I bet it feels good being back at the layout as well as playing with the photography, I've learned so much with my new camera.
