Rob shows us how he added model train foliage to make his layout more realistic:
I have a new video if you might be interested.
In it, I revamped an area that was in dire need of some attention. I call this area the ‘long view.’
It is a fairly long straight section of track where I have built tree-lined screens along both sides.
I didn’t like it because you could see the blue wall through the trees when you were standing over it, which didn’t look right. I must have been in a hurry when I first created it.
I had just piled foliage and trees along the sides without taking much care.
One of the things I did was to arrange the foliage and trees plus I drilled and glued in the trees.
I also filled in below with undergrowth in order to make it look really dense like it had not been attended to in many years.
I hope your subscribers will enjoy this video.
Thank you for all you do to promote the modeling community.
