Have any of you used the following products?

FINE NATURAL SOIL & DIRT
http://www.sceneryexpress.com/prodinfo.asp?number=SS0010

RIVER ROCK/GRAVEL UNSCREENED - QUART
http://www.sceneryexpress.com/prodinfo.asp?number=SS3100-3

I'm curious as to how fine they are and if the gravel looks like small stones in 1/35 scale.

I use GWS gravels. It works well for 1/35 but it's quite expensive IMO.

Oh wow... old thread from figuring out my Gone Fishing dio. I figured this one out which may work for you as well. Get some cheap concrete sand mix and a mesh strainer. Sift out the sand and what's left are the perfect scale river rocks!
