  18. Great dio overall with lot of details. You should avoid using too much artificial trees from the bag and build your own instead or combine them with fine turf for a more realistic result.

    1. Thanks Kostas.
      There are no Artificial (model shop) trees / Bushes on the dio. The only Thing artificial (plant wise) is the grass (some with flowers) clumps..everything else came from the local graveyard..moss.
