I have the small animal set from Busch. They're expensive to find here in the States but if you look you can get them for around $15 from train stores. I have a buddy that moved just moved to Germany and will be back in the states next year for work purposes and I'm thinking I'm going to see if he can't track some more down for me as they're about $10 if you buy them over there.

Edit: Here you go, $10+ shipping. This is where I got my last set and it's a bit cheaper then I remember.

@Matbar, the pool is 5 mm deep by 21 mm wide by 10 mm long. So I need starfish about 3 mm across at most. .1 inches.

@monkeysloth. Ooooo.... that set looks great! Even if I don't use it for this piece, I would love having all those little bits. You never know when you want to add a lizard or bunny to a scene.

@dsmodels A stamp never occurred to me. Thank you!

@Talespinner Wow! Thank you.

I continue to be amazed and delighted at how wonderful people on this forum are!

You can always do your base like this guy did.

I just dropped off and made this fast stamp for green stuff. It's beside a mm ruler so this should be the perfect size for your model. You would just need to trim them out and paint.
If you interested send me a PM with mailing info and I'll send them out to you asap.


And this is why this community is SO Awesome!!!!!

Will you be filling it with resin once the base is detailed?

That's my plan! Though there are lots of minis in line before this one.

If you have trouble finding that animal set, I have a train shop down the street, I can look and see if they have it.
