Bill’s been back in touch with his model train trees ‘how to’.
He’s made another fab video and a few pics too.
The pics really do show the difference between buying scenery, and making it yourself:
“Good Day Al,
Been off work recently recuperating from some back surgery. I put together another tree build video using the Rustic Wire.
This one shows how to build a deciduous tree in HO scale.
These are fun to build and don’t take a lot of time to make and cost is low.
These are a great way for modelers to scratch build something that is totally theirs
Attached are some pictures of the model train trees; both before and after and some general shots of both the HO scale and N scale layouts.
I do like how I can use the N scale layout for forced perspective when it is behind the HO scale layout. Gives it a much bigger look than it really is
A huge thanks to Bill – his pics really sell the scratch build approach. Yes, bought trees look good, but Bills trees and scenery look fantastic.
If you missed his previous posts on his scenery, the last one is here.
Now on to Mike.
He’s been back in touch after posting on his bridges:
“A few of the guys on those bridges that you shared with them asked about them being scale.
One guy told me to put a track in a train on it and see what it looks like which I have done I taken a couple pictures
I wanted to attach them to this and see if you think it looks correct or not since I’m new at this okay thank you again,
That’s all for today.
Please do keep ’em coming.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here if you want to stop dreaming and start doing.
