And the real cool part, all this nice prepared branch materials,

because doug firs always have a lot of bare branches and especially older growth,

and this really helps give you the realistic look.

They suggest adding this material with a hot glue gun,

but I found it easier to use Walthers Goo,

and then touching up with paint if it gets ugly...

Sorry for lighting, not the best to see detail,

but I think you can tell what I was trying to explain...


When glue is dry you can spray with fixative or hair spray,

and dust with finer scenery materials to help create a natural effect.

I just purchased one package of 8 - 6" (44 scale foot in HO) to try them,

and I am really digging the results...

Eventually they will get planted on the diorama...

:cool: ha ha...  only need a thousand more...

So here's a little more of my interior work for the Emporium building.

Lots of little details to come up with,
but here's a shot through the window to proprietor and a customer.

In this shot you can see I got gas pumps for the Crossing in,
love that Grizzly gas...

Hose material a bit oversized, but real rubber type stuff...
kinda cool.

Back to the Emporium here's the upper shot of counter,
and the cooler I built to keep the cheese and meat cold...

Stole this idea from a built kit I saw on EBail a while back,
very good version which has helped a lot with this build,
as the following of vague directions not my strong point.

And our erstwhile postal clerk working hard...
need a bit more painting on what ever is in his hand.

Love these old Revell figures, I think they came from their station kit...
More to follow.
