Thanks for your kind comments, John.
My modeler used Calcium Carbondi Oxfade (he's not sure about the last word) and 3M spray glue to make that snow. Hope this helps!

So what's the scientific name for it?, Calcium Carbondi Oxfade or Calcium Carbornate Oxide? or what?

Very nice! What did you use for snow?
Or flour? Either works very well.

Today my armor & diorama modeler dropped by to deliver
Trumpeter's Leopold and T-55 w/ KMT-5, so I asked him more about the Calcium Carbondi Oxfade that he used.
He said he bought from a pharmacy, it is for relieving
stomachache - very muchlike "Eno". After using 3M spray glue over the dry glass, he then top it with the sodium
through a fine net..

In the past he had used many other substances, but this two seem to work best, judging the number of inquiries.
There were 4 modelers in several sites asking about what he used.
