Ok I can't promise this will be the last post on trees, but I had a little time in the train room (garage) today and managed to finish this tree. There is a little bit of trimming to go, but basically I'm there.
This first one is just to show how I've covered the trunk so that it to doesn't get a layer of green over it.
This next one is with the foliage attached. It is a product I've previously mentioned from a company in the UK called Treemendus. It is fixed to the branches with a matt adhesive or fixative spray.
Here I've added the flocks. I really do prefer the fine ground turf that adheres to the fibres making it look like much finer branches. It is interesting to compare the colours in the foliage in the photo above and below. The difference is the colour of the light. My layout light in the second shot is a much more yellow light compared to the almost blue/white light in the first photo.
There is still some trimming to be done, but you get the idea. Not bad for an hours work I thought.
That'll do for now, enjoy your week, Happy New Year!
