Rock and Soil Product Questions
« on: March 21, 2007, 07:09:03 AM »
Have any of you used the following products?

FINE NATURAL SOIL & DIRT

RIVER ROCK/GRAVEL UNSCREENED - QUART

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

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!
