No Business Like Snow Business

Stuart Jordan

STUART JORDAN looks at different snow effect products to add a touch of winter to your layout.

Modelling Snow

Southern Class 313 at Ford level crossing (just outside Gaugemaster HQ) back in January 2013.

Itís getting to that time of year when (in the Northern Hemisphere at least) the winter nights draw in and the snow begins to fall... if you believe what you see on Christmas cards! If you want to emulate the sight of treetops glistening then we have a variety of products to add snow effects to your layout.


Deluxe Materials produce three different snow products; Scenic Snowflakes, Scenic Shovelled Snow and a Scenic Snow Set.

Modelling Snow

DLBD-25 Scenic Snowflakes come in a shaker and can be applied to give anything from a light frost to a heavy covering.

Modelling Snow

DLBD-26 Shovelled Snow is specially made to act like large piles of snow and big drifts. If you mix it with DLAD-25 Scatter Grip you can mould it into snowballs and snowmen! Donít forget the GM122 Coal for his eyes and buttons...

Modelling Snow

DLBD-29 Scenic Snow set gives you the Scenic Snowflakes from above, as well as Scenic Bond and Icy Sparkles (DLBD-33). The Icy Sparkles can be added to the snowflakes to give them that extra twinkle.

Travelling to work by train every day, Stuart is well aware of the 'effect' snow can have on the British rail network...
