Thanks for the great tip. I'll have to see if I can get my hands on some of the film cans since they're harder to come by now a days. If not I'll try the salt and pepper shakers everyone is talking about. Would an old spice shaker work or are the holes to big?

Just came across this after posting my own thread in the 'Questions' section about the best flock for 1/12 use. Got great answers there. Thanks Marc and all posters here.
Has anyone here experience with flocking a 1/12 project? Which flock 'scales' best?

I would suggest you try the flocking most people use for 1/24 scale models, as it would look more in scale in 1/12 than it does in 1/24 scale. Unless you're replicating shag carpet, cut pile carpet strands are less than 1/4" tall in real life, so on a 1/24 scale model they'd need to be at most .01042" tall. :huh: You'd have to grind up the flocking with a mortar and pestle to get it that fine/short, but I think it'd look a lot better than it does straight out of the package.
