Peter’s CHOICE: CHEST­NUT Tree

Model Rail (UK) - - Workbench -

Noch has ded­i­cated 30 pages of its 2018 cat­a­logue to its model trees, which range from its econ­omy tree packs to the high-qual­ity Profi mod­els. The trees come well pack­aged and I have gen­er­ally found their Profi trees to be al­most ‘plantable’ straight out of the box. Some­times the fo­liage colours are a lit­tle too bright, but this can be toned down by adding a thin sprin­kling of dif­fer­ent-coloured, more sub­dued leaf-ef­fect scat­ter ma­te­rial. The trunks on the more ex­pen­sive trees look very good, al­though the bases need to be cut off (a 30-sec­ond job). In this round-up I found the Noch trees to re­quire the least work to bring them up to scratch.
