Hi Martin,
Thanks for bringing these threads across to Freerails. The pines with "needles" instead of ground foam make for big improvements on the more common approach to pine trees. When time permits, please post some of your other experiments as well.

Cheers,
Dan Pickard

Not to tell anyone what to do but the sure thing you can do to virtually ruin your hobby is to MARKET THEM! Ask me and a hundred others just how we know this. With that said, thank goodness that some folks do make stuff for sale, otherwise cool stuff wouldn't be available. It takes a certain mindset to make and sell model railroad products. I salute those who pay themselves $1.25/hour just so us modelers can pay $5.00 for something that takes 4 hours to make.
Excellent trees, Martin. They look as real as they can be.

Woodie

I'm looking forward to learning how to make my own. I'm on a mission to make as much as possible myself in this hobby. My competitive glider flying has come to the point where I can't build a competitive airframe myself without $$$ worth expensive equipment and materials. So I buy mt planes. I don't want to buy my train layouts too.

Woodie, been asked several times to build stuff for MRR's. Made a job out of designing furniture wich still is a hobby and great fun. Do play guitar in a band also..these 2 I see as a job (with great fun) so I keep the MRR to myself. Do build some trees once and a while for fellow MRR'ers.

Mike I do the same things, like to build great looking stuff for a nickel..so I show you my discoveries on this path..

Another test today using 10, 6 and 2mm fibers with the grassmaster and compressed air. After that a coat from below with WS green grass fine turf....







Slightly bigger tree this time, more than a foot, the little ones from yesterday below...
Show you a tutorial when I mastered the technique a bit more, just have to finetune a bit..
