Hi,

Great tip and demo. I use them on my layout as well. On some I teased out some parts of the cut strips to look like the bushes you get in hedges. Looks ok from a distance.

Martin - I suggest you have a look at the controller review section.
If you're running DC I would recommend a Gaugemaster one with accessories output.
Could I please ask you to put your questions in the section that deals with it (saves us poor overworked Mods from moving the posts ;))

another thing I have done with a OO gauge hedge when I cut it in half, I could then make a double height hedge as if it had been left neglected and had not been trimed regularly.Looks quite good.

Here are two images of my hedge I have made, a single row and the over grown double height hedge.
Hope this might give you some idea's as this is real my first attempt to do it free lance, other than buying a ready made hedge, which did not quite what I wanted.

I saw a mention somewhere that you could use the green pot scourer pads to make hedges so thought Id have a go and heres how I did it.

Caz, excellent tutorial! I've been wondering about how I'll model hedgerows. I'd not seen that subject treated - and you did it very well! One of the most striking things about Somerset (where my son lives) is the hedge rows. I hate driving the lanes bounded by them, but they are a significant element in the countryside, defining the fields, and adding a much scenic interest.

I'm assuming that the countryside around Wiltsbury should have hedge rows. Honestly, when I drove down to Westbury I avoided all the roads that might have had hedge rows - or failed to notice them while concentrating on my driving. I've driven from one end of the U. K. to the other - North to South and East to West, and the transition from left hand drive to right hand drive is no problem. Age is, however, so I don't enjoy views the way I once did.
