Some of it is. Like the pine cones and barbed wire fence, the cones are beads and then glued on and painted. The picture doesn't show it real well, but there is a hornets nest, squirrel nest and buck rub in the fence row.

I've done quite a few, it's nice collecting the 1/16 farm toys , but they just sit on a shelf so I made farm scenes for the equipment like we have or my great grandfather had on the farm.

Some times I will take a panoramic photo of a land mark on the family farm,have it enlarged and use as a back ground.

The fun is the same as when I build 1/2 size tractors, finding something to use to make it look like full size.

The dirt, turf are a coarse foam, it comes in many shades and is sold at model train stores. Everything is artificial except the tree main frames.
