I don't know if this is old news, but it's something that just occurred to me to try. I was yakking over the fence with a visitor when I got to looking at the moss growing out of the cedar boards. This time of year, the stuff is everywhere and comes in a wide variety of forms and colors. Very detailed and visually interesting. I grabbed a putty knife and scraped a couple of samples off and set them on top of the furnace to dry. After a little trimming for size and structure, I glued them to my 1/64th scale diorama as Hosta plants around the house. I really like the look. Not sure how durable they're going to be, they might dry out completely and turn to dust. If so, I'll try some different ways to preserve them.
Here are some photos of my model car racing set up in my basement. It's 4.5 ft wide and 16.5 ft long, each lane is 62 ft long. The track is a mix of plastic Scalextric Classic and more modern Scalextric Sport, all analog. It has been under development for over 3 years and I'll probably be doing upgrades and improvements for several more years. To me, construction and adding scenery is just as fun as building and racing the cars.
