I really need to do something about those horrible plastic boots...

Could you cut them off, then say drill a small hole into the trunk and insert something like a track pin which could be used to anchor them in place?

Yes,  that's the plan ultimately  :)

Weather the trunks and stick them in the ground. The boots simply slip off and leave a little nub that can be pushed into a hole.

I'm just still  shifting bits around to get the right stuff in the right places, so not quite ready to fix them down just yet.

Me whining about things that I have complete control to fix  :D

This really made me smile, excellent!

Thereís some lovely looking domestic scenery coming on in the layout, looking great now and will look awesome when weathered (I never have the bottle to do this so everything in my world looks like itís jet washed every day).

Thanks for posting,

PT.

Extending out Stony Houghton farmland away from the church and townsite. Finally got to those pesky tree stumps.

And a very bucolic scene it is too. Nice.
