Hello I am new member here and from Bangkok Thailand. I like to make model trees and diorama scene. Most of my handmade model trees made from wire, paper and art clay. Here some of my handmade model trees that I made before and hope you like its. Please apologize about my English text if any mistake and many thanks to freerails.com.
Fantastic looking trees! Can you give us a little more in detail on the construction of the trees, specifically the palms. I would like to do a diorama of a Cuban sugar cane scene and those would fit beautifully. By the way the English is fine and welcome to Freerails.
