New Poplar trees

Earlier this week a package arrived from Jack at All Scales Models in Ireland, included among the static grass and a few bushes were 3 Poplar trees that I ordered a couple of months ago. To me they are well worth the wait. There are a number of sizes available I decided  TT/HO scale as the OO scale at 260mm were too large.

The new trees replaced the old ones along side the Station Masters house. The car is a 1948 FX Holden from Gwydir Models bought  recently at the Newcastle exhibition which was weathered and placed on the layout, thank you Warren for bringing it along.

        Peter, congratulations, your layout has fantastic balance of open space and infrastructure. The second stanza of replica poplars are great, typical of many house yards. The gum trees are also excellent, are they wire wound by yourself with ‘foam’ foliage? I’d like to try growing a few. Bob (Adelaide)

        Hi Bob.
        Thank you for your comment.The trees are wound from copper welding cable all I know is one blue casing and the other black soldered to give them strength and a mixture of No More Gaps diluted with Tamiya grey acrylic paint was carefully applied The foliage is made from Woodland Scenic’s foliage mat. At first it took a while with a couple of failures but after that it was ok. Regards Peter
