Just saw these new on the MBK site
http://www.modeltrainstuff.com/949-1129-Early-Spring-Meadow-Grass-Mat-p/949-1129.htm

Anyone seen one in person?

They look useful, but I'm curious about peoples actual experiences with them.

Interesting solution... but if I were to install it in my living room it would be $315/sq.yd. :facepalm:  :D

Reminds me of Scenic Express RTR grass mats, and priced about the same per square inch. From the photo it looks pretty good, and, for sure, getting a similar result with static grass would be quite a bit of work. I'd like to see it, too.

thus was my thought as well.  And Noch has similar products too. One wonders if there's a rebranding going on here.

I bought one. I think it's summer meadow. I can check when I get home. Haven't used it yet, but they do look a lot like the Noch or Scenic Express versions. Silfor ones seem a bit more fine detailed.
