The Capability Brown reference suggests this is related to landscaping, so is it the upmarket version of BB's home made electric tea strainer static grass aplicator.

The other possibillity I thought of was some sort of hot knife for sculpting foam and creating micro climates but that wouldn't explain the plastic box.

It's a static grass applicator. :P

The one I now have is an 80mm head (strainer). The static grasses should arrive tomorrow. I think I've ordered enough to last me out considering I don't do that many dioramas.
At least I can keep my farm animals happy now. :beer:

Hi FredG,
After use make sure to discharge any remaining electricty from the Applicator. There are two options how to expel it . 1 Touch it to metal so it sparks making it safe to handle.
:mrgreen: Or option 2. Get whacked by touching any metal part of it yourself. :drool:

:coffee: Forgetting to discharge it ,I got whacked putting mine away after using it.

:joker: CARTOON TIME

What a coincidence, I have just started cutting edge experiments with my ultra magnificent Mk 2 Static Grass Applicator run off the mains and via an upgraded railway transformer with myself wearing a heavy duty helmet and welding mask , thick rubber boots and several layers of Mrs B`s pink washing up gloves. After loading the stuff into place a split second passed, and the applicator sparked into action and bellowed out smoke so is perfect for layering down the burnt remains of a prairie fire.
:winky: "A pure magical success!" _ :drool: ! :eh: ! :shock:! :eh:! :drool:! :shock:!

ALL THOUGH

:cowboy: " The burnt out remains of BB`s table top needs replacing, as do the rubber boots that melted and stuck to the floor. The gloves survived it all and without a single singe mark to em . As did BB,who spent the next several hours trying to get his fuzzed out beard to stay down."___ :mrgreen: " He failed."
:sst: "the welding helmet and mask are still imbedded deeply into the ceiling and sure look kinda cool now the fires out."_ :drool:! :eh: ! :eh: ! :drool:! :drool:! :eh: " What!"

Moving along now from FredG`s potential hair raising ,and my highly electrifying extravaganza.

I bought this Dapol Kit,to obtain the two rare AIRFIX figures for one of my electric Rocket train sets. BB

I thought a few sections of dry stone walling could come in handy when basing figures. I found an offer on ebay for 80 pieces for £12.99 (inc postage) which seemed a bargain. I received the package this morning and to me it is a bargain.

Image

This is only six pieces and it makes a sizeable length and has a gate position.

Image

80 pieces is a lot of wall.

Image

Oh! and there was a bonus stack of sacks ( to be revealed at a later date.

Yet another box of these in the stash.

The massed ranks of old guard grenadiers should be some sight (when I get around to it) :eh:

Would be great to see that set painted by you in huge numbers. But I am quite satisfied with your metal figures!

These Schilling chappies were on offer for the second time on ebay. As the old guard is a future project I thought I'd add them to the stash. The total cost on ebay was less than just the postage from Schilling so I was very happy with that.

Image

They fit in perfectly with the Zvezda Old Guard set.

There is a change from trumpet to drummer. Is the drill going to be weak?

I like too to get something for low price.
But finally spend all the saved money
