SMALL SQUARE HAY BALES
Building simple yet effective hay bales is much easier than it appears! They look fantastic and bring the scene to life.
The secret is static grass but not your regular sized static grass... For these bales in HO scale I had to track down a very short static grass! 1mm grass to be exact. Luckily there is a hobby manufacturer that sells just the right type of grass, they are War World Scenics.
It's possible to carefully dice up some twine to use as the hay fibers however using already made static grass makes the job much easier and faster!
