Great tip and I like grapes to. So not only is railway modeling a green hoby (we recycle loads of things into our layouts) it can help you on your way to your 5 a day

QUOTE (Duztee @ 27 Aug 2007, 16:00) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>If you want cheap but very realistic trees I would suggest you try eating a lot of grapes, save the stalks and dry on a sunny window ledge for a couple of weeks this is the result.

I'd never thought of that. It's an idea I will have to experiment with. (As soon as I get paid and can afford the luxury of food again!!)

Another tip not so much for trees but for logs etc. is the garden Mallow (huge pink flowering thing which is rampant in my back garden) When pruned, allowed to dry and cut to the appropriate length it makes excellent logs.
