Trees and More Trees
I have always wanted to have some trees that are full at the top but loaded with dead branches below like the one's you see that are left after cutting down those on the outside of a stand of pine. I think I have finally found a way to make them. I used the plastic logs that came with my Rivarossi log cars as the trunks and drilled the small end to receive a Heki # 309 N scale trees. After dry brushing the logs with a burnt sienna craft paint I drilled small holes in the side of the trunk where knots were cast and inserted short lengths of a natural material cut from a scrub brush.
