Thanks Mike, do enjoy to make and share them. This dropping technique 's also very usefull to make more irregular tufts. Been working on them with some 12mm Noch fibers...







lie to create some smaller H0 bushes with them.

When i read through these pages, I had one thing in mind...

It's time to play... REAL OR MODEL!!!!:rah::glad::moose::s:;)

I don't think I've ever seen trees and bushes look that real. Some do come close, but not quite this good. Certainly won't find these on the commercial market by big companies. And about marketing, I agree with what others have said, don't try to make a business out of these trees. However, no one said anything about bringing a couple boxes to a show? If you do go to train shows regularly, maybe you could look into that. Bring a layout and sell these to pay for gas, or lunch. Anyways, just a suggestion, not saying you have to; your trees, your business;)
Really, they are very good trees.

Muchos gracias James. About marketing, well could think about it but it's a looooooooooooooooong wet drive for me to US shows ;):)

On with the 12mm's shown above, added some shorter fibers with the matte medium technique shown in the heather. After that a quick caot of mud brown and again the same matte medium adding. Instead of the purple sand I added fine leaves from Polak...



with a coin for size...



and a close look....



looks like great smaller bushes vor H0 to me.;):)

Been a long time since I posted here, purchased a new grasmaster. This pro stick from the company Maagflock gives me 70kV of static power, so much the fibers are everywhere doin the tuft stuff. As a woodworker it's easy to build a nice box for tuft stuff...



Couple of alumium rails on the bottom for earth...



Same sheets of aluminium covered with some sheets of plastic..



drops of gleu...added with a white glue bottle with a fine tip...



Closer look at the mean machine, huge 7" cup, also have a 4,5 an 2,5" cup...



sheets in the box....



big mess with pure power...



after knocking off the loose fibers even a bigger mess..



short vacuum with a dyson, ideal for grass just tip over the container and ready for use again...



and 2 sheets of tufts...



closer look



over 300 tufts in 11 minutes, pictures inclusive...
