How to Model Waterside Plants using Noch Laser Cut Minis

How to Model Waterside Plants using Noch Laser Cut Minis

Water plants are found in three areas:

  1. In the water itself, such as water lilies
  2. In the water margins, such as reeds and rushes or water knot weed
  3. On the damp edges of the water

So far in this series we have looked at water lilies and reeds but there are other plants that grow along the water’s edge and modelling them can really help ground your layout or diorama. This video looks at two types of plant, those in the margins and on the edges. ¬†These are easily modelled using Noch Laser Cut Minis and in this episode I use HO scale Wasserknoterich (#14104) and Wasserlilien (#14140).
