In-Box Review
Buffalo Grass
Silflor Buffalo Grass
  • IMG_00016

by: Jeff [ SGTREEF ]

Silflor is the Name and Quality is the Game, especially after receiving this package I was in amazement of the quality of the Product. The packing is good and the product arrived in good shape. The first thing was to remove the sheets from the box, they are packaged in two sheets of clear plastic that look like they were cut from a large roll of some sort as they are round in form, but can be cut in two if one chooses to.

The package includes well over 100 Tufts on both sheets so there is plenty to last for a long time. This arrangement give 4 sheets to work with which might be better as to keep the stuff in its package to avoid damage or loss until you are ready to use it. No instructions are included except 4 pics which Is all one would need really as the product is fairly straight forward to use, just peel using pointed tweezers, put a drop of white glue on the back, and apply to your diorama base.

I know many years I ago I tried the dried foliage stuff with drill the holes, cut the foliage, and glue in routine but these will change that idea I am sure. The main use is in Model Railroading to add tufts of grass to a scene, but their style allows multiple uses and will no doubt come in handy for the scale diorama builder. Silflor provides multiple colors and types for a variety of landscaping options, so grab a Bag and go for it!
Highs: Great colors that don't need to be dry brushed. A good choice of different styles to choose from.
Lows: Price might be a deterrent to some.
Verdict: Great product to use, easy to apply. Good choice of colors.
