I do get funny looks when I buy three cans of hair spray at a time, not having much hair to use them on!

I got exactly the same treatment at our local supermarket, made even worse by my eldest sister stating "It's OK. He's doing some modelling"

I once mentioned to a young lady checkout operator, probably a teenager, what the spray was for and she had actually heard that it could be used for making trees. Perhaps she had a model making boyfriend or brother.

I have to admit that I took the coward's way out and used a self-service till when I bought the Morrison's 'Extra Firm Hold'.  I used it weeks ago and there is still a hint of boudoir about the train set room!

A great idea of binding the pieces together with tissue paper as a non-cracking alternative to plaster.

 :thankyousign:

I have a few more trees to make, so will definately try that.  :D

All best wishes
Kevin

You could say that the non-cracking alternative is a cracking idea  :D
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Wrenton's trees are somewhat older than that but because the layout is kept under cover (see https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=38682.msg464959#msg464959) the supposedly unscented spray is still giving the layout a distinct, though not unpleasant smell!

Not feeling too well at present so I've spent some time browsing through old photos of the layout. I found a couple of shots of the right hand end scenic module before it was installed. Taken from what would be the back of the layout they're views that I can't get these days. First we're looking down the car park of the Red Lion towards the Guildhall with the church tower in the background.



Moving along a short distance gives a glimpse of the churchyard.
