Corn Fields

Just about to model corn fields. So far I have used Woodland scenics for the
grass areas amd it looks great. However, do you guys have any other
opinions, such as the matt stuff, which I have, but looks too tall? What
about making tactor tyre marks around the outside?
Thanks in advance

Scale?
For tyre tracks... the tried and true method would be to use a model tractor...

You wouldn't see tyre tracks across cornfields much before the late seventies when intensive spraying against fungal infections became the norm. Possibly a farmer may do some late top dressing of fertiliser, but this would be when the crop was still green. It rather depends on what time of year you intend to portray on your layout.

If using static grass, simply wet the tyres with a mix of PVA and furniture polish. Then paint the tracks with dilute brown water-based paint.

Door mat. Cut up carefully. Need to be selective in the one chosen to be the right length and texture.

Do you want Wheat or Maize? If the latter, then there is a product available.

Noticing that you also posted this separately to the North American group have you considered what sort of Cornfield you mean.
A Uk Cornfield is a can be very different crop from a North American one. Not sure about Canada but in the US Cornfield usually means Corn on the Cob, not acres of Golden Barley waving in the wind. G.Harman

What time of year? Autumnal, post-harvest, might be rather easier...
