Hello,

now I have some time to test these technique.

Here some pictures.
From the left to the right you see my 1-3 test and the 4 tree is the one I used the last time, I bought them.


I think the third tree is my best one,
here some nearer pictures.






Tomorrow I start the next test.
I have to use not too much fibre 6mm.

I forgot to say these trees are for scale On30/0e.

Cheers Kalle

Third one looks good to me too, just as you mentioned use less fibers for the twigs. You're on the right track here Kalle !

Looking great Kalle. What I really like this method, and the result, is the more natural looking slightly uneven finish to the shape, as opposed to the clean tapered finish that results from most "bottlebrush" versions of pines. Thanks for sharing youe efforts.

Cheers,
Dan Pickard

Kale! those trees looks great to me! I recently turned to H0 again, but this time is H0m, I was in switzerland two months ago and was impressed with the scenery there... so, picked up a Bemo loco as a souvenir, but man... this model is awesome, so am seriously thinking in turn definetively to H0m and keep the 0n3 only for fun.

     You are right on the mark. Kalle's work is superb. One of the pics looks great to me which is of the weeds in mid process. The look is like wet mud/swampy looking. Just needs cattails and quicksand. A flexible base could be added so you could easily cut it apart. Anyway :moose::moose::moose::moose::moose: to Kalle for sharing his excellent work.

   You are correct, if anyone wants to improve the scenery process, they reread or read all of the posts on the topic.
