Yes, that's the firm, they have really nice back scenes in their range, I picked this one up from Hattons, who seem to stock some of the range.
Best regards

Hi, part of the new approach to the station, I thought it would be nice to have a number of Scots Pine trees on the other side of the fence on the approach road. It was also an excuse to try out building my own trees. Can't claim originality in the methods used, the method has been influenced by a couple of on-line tutorials.



The trunk is made from a balsa dowel, the branches are made from wire secured in place with super glue. This was coated with PVA and then covered by coffee grounds. This was then painted/ dry brushed a variety of colours (browns, reds and grey), the canopy was some poly fibre covered in static grass. The height of the trees are around 35 '- 40'. As a first attempt it seems to be vaguely like a Scots Pine, but it could do with more and darker foliage.
Thanks for reading and stay safe. R


Best regards
Rowlie

Yes, they look very good but, as you sasy, some darker foliage would improve the overall appearance.
With kind regards

Looking good but I also agree, slightly darker foliage and perhaps just a little bit more dense ?
If it looks right then it most probably is right.
