  1. Hi all, I'm planning a Normandy diorama, set in the bocage hedgerows and was after some recommendations on any realistic tree products. I've purchased various scenic products to create the hedgerows themselves but I'm struggling to find some realistic trees to use. I was wondering whether anyone could make some recommendations please? Failing any decent kit trees I'll have to try and make my own but thought I'd ask the question first. Many thanks in advance.
  2. Well for those of us that wish to do a forrest or some trees on thier diorama i have put together an idea i came across and its cheap (which is always good). Ive sat and considered buying the prebuilt trees but it wold need a bank loan to get close to having a deep forrest look. So low and behold nature came to my resuce here, i was in the garden doing so digging and i notice a bunch of roots growing and they got me thinking...............cheap trees! These were growing from a conifer that I was evicting as it was getting to big, but as you can see they have a good base shape of a tree. So after I let them dry out and cleaned the dirty of I begun leafing in it with so dark earth course grade tufts to give it some depth. To do this I sprayed it with hairspray and rolled it around GENTLY in a tub of the dark earth tufts As you can see its a good start, so I repeated this a few times to make it look a bit fuller of leaf even though it will be a autum-ish tree for a later dio I am planning. So now I added some fine yellow tufts and a pinch of red for the autum-ish look, so nearly 1/4 of the hairspray has gone (don't tell you girlfriends or wifes when you do this and its her's) but its building up slowly. The idea is to build up layers of colours, dark on the inside and lighter ones on top. So this is how it will look (placed next to a dio) after a few coats of hairspray and placed in your tufts. Many people have tried making trees and come out with better results than me but this is one of the first times I have used real roots and hope to find better ways to make them Not too shabby and would be good with 20 more in a forest, big plus it cost next to nothing to make! all comments welcome.
  3. Hi all this is my very first attempt at scenic modelling and my first ever diorama. It is the first result from my review of the new Precision Ice and Snow product that Steve at Precision Ice and Snow asked if I would do a review for him. I happily took him up on the offer It offered a great excuse to to a bit of much needed modelling as I have not had chance to do any the last few months. So enough waffle Here Is the result. Its wonderful stuff and highly recommended. For the build which is still ongoing go here : http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234945975-precision-ice-and-snow-review-of-the-new-amazing-snow-effect/page-3#entry1416643 Buy Precision Ice and Snow at : http://precisioniceandsnow.com/Precisioniceandsnow/Home.html Cheers Rob Well that wraps up the first Dio pretty much now on with the others. Cheers Rob
