Trees

Model Rail (UK) - - Workbench -

I used a se­lec­tion of ready-made trees on this lay­out, in­clud­ing Noch sum­mer de­cid­u­ous trees, Noch fruit trees, Wood­land Scen­ics Pre­mium trees and Wood­land Scen­ics Clas­sic trees. All of the trees looked good, and I also added three very cheap trees that I had in stock which had bright green fo­liage. I cov­ered it with hairspray, then sprin­kled on fine-qual­ity scat­ter ma­te­ri­als to im­prove their ap­pear­ance.

Drill, bore or punch a small hole into the base­board, place a blob of PVA into the hole and press the tree in place. Hide the base with scat­ter. In this case, I’ve used Poly Fiber.

I ran a bead of PVA glue in the cot­tage gar­den and pushed the line of fruit trees into the glue. I spread the glue over the base and sprin­kled on some ‘soil’ scat­ter.

This is fruit grow­ing ter­ri­tory, so I thought th­ese Noch fruit trees would be ideal. The fruit looks hor­ri­bly over-scale un­der a mag­ni­fy­ing glass.

Noch’ ‘N’ gauge stan­dard sum­mer trees next to a 2p coin. The trees in the pack vary be­tween 40mm and 100mm in height.
