Let see them in "Z" we are looing for nice Z scale trees in the forest those are really nice and some really great work but do them in Z that's another thing! I think we are looking into the Small world of Z Trees! but I really like those pictures! that is a nice layout and some really master craftsman work! If only they would make a machine that would shrink them down to our scale. that would really be cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Two questions.

1. Is there a video out there of you using your tree making machine (link please)? If not, you need to get busy and get one put together. I, for one, would love to see it in action and I’m sure many more would as well!


I should make a video of my machine at work. A future project.


2. Has anyone that you know of put together a pine tree canopy for large areas? I’ve seen it done for other types of trees but not pines or furs.

When you say canopy, are you referring to just a thick upper top later of tree foliage and not having the foliage go all the way to the ground?

I've thought about that too and I believe putting down a slightly raised screen would be the way to go with the canopy trees stuck through the wire. Would save time just making the top of the trees and use less material. Along the edge of the forest you would want trees with limbs and greenery all the way to the forest floor. Is that what you are talking about?

Yes, I wondered if anyone has had any luck with a conifer type of canopy... But do the video on the tree machine first. And do it soon, please. I need to make a few thousand sometime this year.

Here is another type of tree I made with the above items I used these chenille stems!



After dry brush with green they looked like this stuck in a piece of two inch foam and can be shaped but look good as is for hill side at a distance!
