Extra fine brown ballast chippings 3.1/2lb

Almost every model railway has areas that are outside the railway perimeters. Such areas still need to be covered by something to disguise the baseboard underneath. There are many products under the banner of ‘ground cover’ to help you create a realistic environment for your railway to sit in. Ground cover can include everything from natural vegetation, areas of water to man-made areas such as roadways, paving, cobblestones, concrete, quarries, bowling greens, crop fields, farmyards, canals,to name but a few.

There are 2 main types of products that you can use to replicate your chosen scene; scatter materials that are sprinkled onto the selected area, and sheet material that is cut to size and fixed down to the selected area.

These granite chippings from the extensive range by Javis, can be used in a quarry area, on roadways and paths, in wagons to represent loads, and track ballast too.

It can be fixed down with WS191 Scenic cement, dilute PVA or even matt varnish.
