Its really fun to actually get to building some of the kits I have collected over the years,

but I am realizing I have no room for most of them on the proposed layout.

Given the room I have to work with, I am going to have to be pretty selective...

Not that its gonna stop me from building more of them, but I am picking my battles.

First though a couple of my own attempts from scratch...

These are sculpted bbq skewers and water putty bottom...

old furnace screen material, and Woodland Scenics ground foam, various colors and grinds...

Not really that great.

So here's the results with the Coastmans kits...

Really looks more like Doug Fir which is most common around here,

and what I was hoping to get more of...

They provide a block that you glue to a piece of cardboard

and the bottom pin goes into the trunk and holds them while gluing, spraying etc.

They provide foliage material.

This main mat with tiny branches is great.

You tear off chunks and white glue them to trunks and shape them.
