    I need some help on a hill on my layout. You can see the rocks that will get painted to match the rocks shown. What I don’t know how to do is apply vegetation to the side of this hill.

    I want it to look like exposed dirts and grass. Any ideas on how to accomplish this? I’m afraid anything that I will apply will just fall off the side of the hill.

    With the angle, IRL, there would be no vegetation to speak of. You may be better off making sure the Surface is solid and painting in strata like shale between the rocks. I ended up doing that on a steep embankment. You can see it under the 4 bay hopper.

    thanks,
