    I made and planted some trees this evening. Going to have to put this project aside for now as I want to make an attempt to get something going for the next photo contest.

    Here be another shot. This is the back side of the dia. So you won't really see the scene from this angle.

    I second the comments, especially Val's. How about a simple "how I did it" for us fumblethumbs?:) :)

    Hey, thanks for all the nice comments!

    To tell the truth I don't know what the weed I use is called. :eek:
    It's fairly tall and this time of year it looses it's blooms and turns brown (dead) :D Around here it's all over the place.
    I just remove the seed's and anything else that don't look scale.
    the rest is done with Woodland Scenic Poly Fiber and mixed ground and coarse turf. held in place with hair spray. There is another trick that involves a lighter but not healthy for the youngest readers to try:eek: :D

    I'll post a how to as best I can on the tech forum.

    t., That's a superb bit of modelling. Everything, the rocks, the portal, the trestle, the ground cover and trees. It's so realalistic, I'm in awe of it. That short line freight train looks right at home there.

    Splendid work sir!
