While making terrain mats and new pieces, I discarded many unsuitable items.
In that category, were very large based jungle foliage; not particularly useful for DBX.
From these, I salvaged its components, but needed something to fill the gap between undergrowth and palm trees.

Solution found.

Thank you both for the kind word.

Next is the Sea mat.
This can use colour variation and white caps.
Strips of land will offer the foundation for all the tropical foliage.

Milliput for ground contours- you must be a millionaire!
Common wall plaster/ putty does it for the rest of us!

I like your trees idea, but I'd still spray a bit to tone down the ultra bright lime edges… and as for tropical, well that means 'wet' and there would be a green verdant leafy undergrowth, so your clean bases are just a bit ahhh, off base…
cheers dave
