Hello!
I´m doing some test for underlay so which is the best and cheapest way.
I did bought Busch ground cover:Pine forest and i did also bought topsoil.
Busch ground cover did cost about 3,5 euro at 300 ml.
Topsoil did cost about 2,7 euro at 10 litres(10 000 ml!).
On the first picture you can see left Busch ground cover and right topsoil.
I shall do some more test by put high grass on the cover to see how good it looks like as prototyp.

One observe...
I did used white glue that dries to transparent.
For the topsoil you can use brown glue which fits better as colour togehter with topsoil.

Hi Goofy,

What do you mean by brown glue? Is it just a coloured version of the white glue?

Thanks,

Mike.

Okey...
I have done finish my test and did found out that to use paint "raw umber" fits good on the underlay like sand or fine ballast.
Topsoil is not good since it´s too light to get stuck on the glue.
I hope you did understand me...
