Making trees with Woodland Scenics armatures

Making trees with Woodland Scenics armatures

I'm exercising my god-like powers of creation to build some more trees.

These ones are based on Woodland Scenics' tree armatures, which are reasonably cheap, and make things pretty quick and easy. They're a semi-soft plastic that can be bent and will hold its shape, so though they're moulded flat, they can be manipulated into a more three-dimensional form before any foliage is added. I've glued the plastic armatures to thick, heavy 40mm steel washers, so they're pretty stable. It's not impossible to knock them over, but they don't fall down at the merest quiver.

Yeah, very nice.

Agree with your comments about the clump foliage method on your blog - it only really works if you glue direct with superglue. Hadn't thought of using dacron - got a load lying around, so will give it a try.
