Well, toy making really rather than fully scaled models!

I have been tasked to make a model farm yard. Getting implements and animals is no bother but I need to buy 'model' making bits to create buildings and also specific things like imitation grass, gates etc. Scale will be roughly 1 to 100 but does not need to be accurate (artistic interpretation!).

Can anybody suggest online suppliers please as I have no wish to travel at present.

    Further to Brynsam's suggestion, HO scale model railway scenery bits and bobs may be what you are looking for.
