This week I’ve been planning a new small layout to showcase some of my buildings at an exhibition I’ll be attending in June, the 8 Mile Model Railway Expo at the Great Central Railway in Leicestershire, and one of the things I’ve always struggled with is creating decent looking trees without spending a fortune. So I went on the hunt for some useful tutorial videos on good old Youtube, and here’s on that caught my eye by Philip Stephens. It shows us step by step how to make rather nice looking trees from stranded copper wire, some twine and a tub of scatter or foliage, and they look very good indeed when they’re finished. Hope you enjoy the video as much as I did. I’ll be giving these a go shortly. Also, there’s no limit as to how big or small you can make these trees, so they can be used on any layout from N gauge to OO gauge to O gauge and beyond!
