22 mm Grass Tufts - Blog Post #500

As I worked my way through my supply of grass tufts (mentioned in a previous post) I made sure to order additional ones to avoid the work coming to a halt. As I did that I noticed that the supplyer Green Stuff World now had grass tufts 22 mm in height in several colours. Consequently three packs of high tufts were ordered in addition to the 12 mm versions.

I had ordered three colour variants of the 22 mm grass tufts and having arrived the colours 'Light green' and 'Dry green' seemed to fit perfectly fine with the colours I have previously used on the layout. The grass tufts with the colour 'Burnt' on the contrary, will probably remain in the box. The colour is much to dark and red for my taste. I have measured four tufts and they matched the stated 22 mm pretty well with some being slightly higher.

The grass tufts come in boxes measuring 15 x 9 cm.

While info on the box mentions the product's use in multiple scales, it doesn't mention 1/19 scale.

As the title says this is the 500th post on this little modelling blog. When I started blogging more than 10 years ago, I hadn't thought it would develop into such a lasting activity. Now it has become an integral part of my modelling. Sometimes an inspiration and sometimes a reward allowing me to share the joy of a well executed project. I don't know if I will ever take the blog to celebrate the 1000th post. But so far I intend to keep up the blogging.


  1. Claus congratulations on the 500th post and we continue to enjoy all you share!

  2. Congratulations on 500 posts! I have to say, I'm very interested in these 22mm tufts. They look like they would be suitable for my own 16mm scale layout. I've been cutting up the extra long Woodland Scenics grasses and gluing them in place in clumps. These clumps look far easier. See if you're interested.

    1. Hi Ian - Thanks for contributing with a link to your inspirational work in 16 mm scale. I will be using some of your ways of working with vegetation when I'm getting to do shrubbery and flowers. The 22 mm tufts are usefull and they can be 'roughed up' a bit to be more irregular in height. Will be following you work in the future for sure.
