A tutorial on how to make removable trees for your model railway.
“Removable trees… what’s the point of that?” I hear you ask. Well not all of us have the luxury of having a layout that can be setup permanently and tall things (like trees for example) can cause a bit of a problem when it comes to storing the layout.
Ok, I realise this is most likely the solution to a problem only I have stick with me here…
On my model railway the majority of the trees are up on hills and embankments too which makes them even taller but I’ve come up with a handy little solution that allows me to cut down on storage space and also protect the trees from getting damaged when moving the layout.
This technique is pretty simple and uses the Woodlands Scenics Tree Armatures, so I know it won’t be to everyone’s taste. That said I’ll also show you the basic process I use for making my trees with Woodlands Scenics Fine Leaf Foliage, so hopefully there’s something here for everyone.
