Trees look good Mike. I'm about to embark on a tree building binge and like your technique

Mike, this is why I love this forum!!!
Excellent result on those trees, I'll have to try it! Your layout is beautiful! Really shows what N scale can be, with the right balance of details. I might try your method for trees. Unfortunately, here in Arizona, twigs are few and far between. Got lots of sagebrush though!
Look forward to following your progress!

Thanks Carmine and welcome to the forum! You might try checking out regular bushes in your yard. I get alot of my twigs from Azaleas and Mountain Laurels. I wish I had a supply of sagebrush here, they make great armatures from what I've seen. Please post some pictures of your work when you get a chance!

Mike

Time to move on to the creek area. In the second photo I used latex paint for the basic cover. In the third I used my pastel chalks to "paint" the rocky areas.

We all know how versatile the Dremel is and here we can see a use for it when you run out of push pins. In the second picture I have laid down the basic ground cover and the third show it with some of the bushes and higher grasses installed. That will be it until the water is done then more vegetation and all the trees will be installed.

Nice scene. What are you going to do the water with?

You've made quick progress on this area, Mike. Anything special planned for the area other than vegetation?

Rob thanks, I will be using white polyfiber fill and gloss medium. Bruce thank you, this area is meant to be wild so just a lot of trees and bushes and water.

I was thinking a foot bridge would look good there.

Looking really good Mike! A foot bridge might be a nice touch as well as some hunters with dogs or even a group of kids with fishin' poles.You may be able to market that Dremel use to the company

Thanks Rhett, I already sent a pic to Dremel with a note saying for the right price they could use it in their ads!

Hey! Where did the L&N train come from? I've never seen a grey and yellow caboose like that before.
