Static grass goes down fast, and makes such a dramatic difference. The tress are some cheap, wire-armature trees I purchased on eBay from China. I soaked-off the lime-green ground foam, bent the "branches" into shape, spray-painted with Rustoleum Camo Brown, then used 3M spray adhesive to add a base layer of medium green course ground foam, followed by light spray of the adhesive and some fine green-blend ground foam. The "contours" are just styrofoam cut, shaped, and glued in-place, and painted with the same earth-color latex paint as the base. The bare spots are covered with real, fine dirt.

Here's the harbor side after static grass was added, and roofs added to the structures.

Here it is so far, inside the display case for which it was designed.

Harbor-side view in the display case. There's more to come - this is where I'm at as of posting this thread. I have added water to the harbor, and added a few freight details since the last photo was taken. Check back here for updates as they're available.

Took me a second to realize this is the layout I've been following on FB. Are you planning on making the layout operable within the display case?

No, the plan is to remove the cover to operate the layout. My sanity has its limits...  :)
