Finaly I managed to make some "tall" N scale firtrees!
The first picture is what was goin on during the shooting of this dio...The Captain and his wife+ goose didnot wnat to stay behind the N scale vehicle! So I had to order them to stay and don't move! That was the moment I had to point with my finger!!

These trees are smaller( about max 8 inches) then the ones seen some posts earlier.
The N scale vehicle is only 18 mm/ 3/4 inch high

It's good to see the topic up again. But apparently a number of pictures have been removed from the servers where they were stored.

The idea to make some Sequoias still follows me since watching overhere the logging lines in modell...
Its still "under construction" but a start is made..
Used the wrong paint! to glossy! but that is just a detailpart of the moddeling. With the next tree(s) I'll have to use other paint/woodstain(?)The paint I used was to thick..All those fine engravinglines in the barkof the( balsawood)trunk are almost gone=( Covered by the wrong thick paint.
here the results so far...

and from a preiserman's view...

The branches are just ordanairy floristic wires covered with the filterfibers/decotwister + large 6 mm and 4 mm grassfibers.
With a sharp siccor I modelled the shape of the tree by cutting away the too long fibers/clusters and after that pressing gently the fibers together on the branches.
Added( sprayglue) also some 2 mm small grassfibers....and
finaly sprayed the fibers with a grey/brown color.
Added the leaves...= some 1 mm grassfibers and very fine "fine Turf"- green gras- from Woodland scenics. Also sprayed, when trunk and branches were cleaned from the fine turf, with a grey green color.

and between his other friends:

Jos
