      I made the straw by shaving a piece of scrap cedar with a horse shoer's rasp.

      I suppose such a tool is readily available on Amazon?  eBay? 

       

      Yup.

    • I thinned out some white glue and poured it over all the straw. (Pigs, too. )

      It dried clear and worked great. Shook the loose stuff off and she's good to go.

       

      Oh, BTW, I made the straw by shaving a piece of scrap cedar with a horse shoer's rasp.

      Once I figure out how to get the "straw" glued down, I'll filth those swine up.

       

      John,

      When I made some HO log cars and needed bark and dirt stuck on I just used the thinest CA I could find and painted it on with Qtips and then sprinkled it on. The after the first layer dried I blew it off then painted on more CA and rinse and repeat. By doing this you can unevenly layer debris. May work for the straw.

    • John, 

       

      I love your attention to detail. The broken board with the pig snout sticking out is perfect and not something most would do. 

       

      Great work.

    • Thanks, Guys.

      Once I figure out how to get the "straw" glued down, I'll filth those swine up.

      I'll drip some diluted white glue from an eye dropper. that should hold it.

    • Hope you and your wife have a Merry Christmas, Noel!  I've always been very partial to the Southern Pacific since I was a little kid, but you did a fantastic job of modeling the town of 'Little Truckee'! I'd love to see it in person one of these days. Great video - thanks!
