That makes a really decent looking tree, Mike.

Thanks guys, they really do look better in person as my photography equipment and skills leave a lot to be desired!

Hi, Mike --

That's a mighty fine looking tree.

A couple of questions:
-- is the ground foam held in place by the black spray paint or do you use an additional adhesive?
-- what do you use to glue to pieces to the branches?

Thanks,

Don

Mike,

I'll take a dozen,
Oh, your not giving them away just making them for your layout.
My bad as the younger generation would say.

Good looking tree and I must look for some of those weeds around the house.
We have plenty of weeds just need to find the right location.

Thanks Don. Usually the paint will hold the foam but if need be you can do a overspray with any cheap hairspray if needed. I use Elmer's white glue to hold the pieces to the branches. Thanks John, what I like most is you can build these trees for about 5 to 10 cents apiece.

Well I'm stalled on the pallet company. I guess I will have to consider ordering some detail parts or even a kit of some kind. I've been trying to make it with stuff on hand as my hobby $$$$$ are always in short supply. Anyway when I get stalled it's time to move on to something else for awhile. One of the other forums is having a Blairline challenge and I had bought that company's general store some time ago figuring all my LPs down at the junction would need some place to grab a snack so I guess that will be my next project:

Mike, after your move to the dark side, I didn't think you were still working on your N scale layout. And, what's this talk about another forum? You mean there are other model RR forums?

As you think, so will you be.

The N scale layout still comes first Rick, the dark side is just to settle my craving for "critters"! And yeah, there are other forums but only one other I spend any time on. Pretty much about 60-70% of my on-line time is spent here.

A test fit of some of the pieces tells me there won't be repeat of the @%!@#* that I went thru with the depot! Unlike the MPP kit everything in the Blair Line kit seems to fit perfectly!





I also managed to get things painted today and hope to start building tomorrow:





Not very exciting I know but ya gotta start somewhere!
