That is hysterical. I love British wit--the final line alone is worth the price of admission.

Feline humor aside, the modelwork on display in this video is quite extraordinary; I find European modelers generally produce the best scenery effects in the world.

The funny thing is, when I first started watching it, I had the volume muted cuz I was working on something else.  Then I saw the cats.  :D

Good thing my cat's a long-hair... though I'd been thinking of doing a nice overgrown field...  :scared:

I laughed so hard my eyes watered. Yes, the deadpan narration is what makes the joke so effective. "For larger surfaces, apply glue, then apply cat. Be careful not to soil the area with your blood." Or something to that effect.

Classic. Just classic.

It might be hard to get the cat to come when another area needs grass.

Hey, there's very likely to be at least one "cat lady" in every town.  That should get the job done nice and quick, no need for repeat visit.  :trollface:

I find the distinct "shrish" of lid being peeled back off of cat food can works very well to bring mine around.  It's the trying not to trip while they're welded to your shins that is the hard part.
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.
