Building fantastic looking and very realistic trees from scratch doesn’t have to be hard and I’ll show you just how easy it really is.
This tree will look fantastic on any model railroad, war gaming terrain or a display diorama and it will add life to any layout.
Follow along as I step you through the process I use to create this great looking apple tree. The great part is you can still manipulate the tree to change its shape even after you’ve completed it. It’s a time consuming process but the results are well worth the time and effort.
This particular tree is in HO scale, the wire I used scales down well to N scale and it’s simple to use thicker gauge wire to model in the larger scales.
