Actualy this is a reply on a post in a thread in the "crew lounge" and after watching carefuly what is was going about( the : crew lounge") I decided it would be better to put this post overhere...( I think

Poly fibers are just great materials to make the "green stuff" on any layout, O HO or N even Z..
They are made in several colors but I think you mostly have to "paint" those fibers because of the non-natural colors of it
I use the fibers too but I cut them first in very small parts( about 1/2 an inch), collect them in a large ( shoe)box and add /glue them on the frames by praying glue on the outsides of the twigs/branches..than directly after that: add some fine grassfibers at/over the outside of the braches with fibers and last: adding the leafs with a teasieve, like Ws fine turf in N/Z scale or coarse turf for HO scale. Also the leafs from Noch can ce used/glued on the colored fibers..
Any tree can be made by these fibers!
like a (Fagus) beechtree:

or Betula( birch) trees:

shrubs and firtrees:

Jos, unbelievable !!!!!!
scotchpine Posted - 03/19/2017 : 08:02:52 AM
Thank you ,thank you all!
How I accomplished it?
I just start watching/observing trees forthe last 40 years and started to modell them for 12 years ...with in the beginning a "lot of trash" but in the last 4-5 years something happened.....the jigsawpieces came together!
Still some left but the overall image/picture is already clear!
the frame of the oak still without the bark....
