Some other kind of trees. More specific growing in cities/along streets. They are less wide as "common"trees. It's a type of tree that ends, in latin, with: , "fastigiata"
because I don't have a "city"diorama I've placed the trees in a row on a piece of "wild nature" and of course always...
may be someting like this "crazy" layout plan?;)
It was designed with that "strange " chimeney in the midlle of the layout.
I presume it will be in H0? In Nscale it fits definitely!
btw: 6x9,4 feet?( 182 x 286centimeter?) I think in H0 it will fit too in that space!
" what lengths please"
Start with some 1 mm and the second layer are the 12 mm fibres.
The 1 mm ones can be darker or even Brown... as a base.
I can imagine that sometimes the colour of dry grass or hay or burnt grass is a better choise. It is up to you to decide/ how it works/ looks on...
I don't have an example/photo of making tufts.... I , mostly, make them right on the spot where they belong...
Thanks Glenn and Lynn.
are you familiar with making Tufts?
Well that is actualy the basic of using a static appl.!
I use a glue that doesn't set as fast as white glue... the "surface "of the tiny blobs has to be "open" for some time.
I use /made a mixture of white glue and gesso or...
just placed a small "how to" about making these fast and cheap trees....in my thread obout" How to make trees and shrubs."...
a small "how to"about making "conifer" kind of trees.
Unfortunatly you have to use a "grassmaster"/ "static grass applicator".
A customer asked me if I could make a "North west America "style conifers/trees in scale N and of course cheap and fast to make trees in serie like on an assambly line...
The trees are too 4- 5 inches tall( 10 - 13 cm)
Taler is no problem. I made some of 8 inches( 20 cm)
They " got" 3 layers of the 12 mm fibres.
Before adding the fine turf the shape of the tree needs a litlle bit of correction= with sharp scissor cutting the base a litlle bit smaller.
I am from...
found another picture made with my celphone:
on the bottom my thumb......
and a picture during the making of this cheap/fast tree: 2 layers of 12 mm fibres
I read something about "trees"...:)
May be making them yourself?
You "only" need an electrostatic grasmaster .
Also a piece of a floristic wire ,some long - 12 mm, and shorter , 4 mm ,fibres and some fine turf from Woodland you can make some quite
realistic pine/fir/spruce tree. 4-5 inches...
Not realy "new" trees... actualy the same stuff as usual: trees;)
And did the scenery for a customerlayout. Situated somewhere in germany and during early spring.
just a question about how you add the fine turf...
Do you use a strainer that will keep/sift the "bigger "particels of the turf from the smaller ones?
The smaller ones will look more like neeedles!
When adding without a strainer, just out of the box I think it looks still to...
Those first spruce trees are not bad at all!
Did you consider to use some 12 Fibres and 2 mm on the brances and finaly add some fine turf?
Just add with a strainer and use sprayglue to fix the fibres on the small end of the wires.
Before adding the fibres spray the frame with a darkgree/olive...
Thank you Max!
Now something different: Autumn and a lot of tees in a small space, actualy a box : 1 foot x 1 foot x 10 inches
