does anyone know where i could get some good looking trees, i have seen some but they look like they would be better for my sons thomas the tank layout.
Have you thought of making your own trees with armatures covered in Woodland Scenics materials ? not only will it save you money but your son could help create part of his layout.
One stockist of Woodland Scenics in the U.K. i found is ....... http://www.totallytrains.co.uk/
Go to the all scales section there and follow to Woodland Scenic foliage a bag of it will be more than suffice for your needs and be useful around the layout.
The Woodland Scenics site ...... http://www.woodlandscenics.com/
has "how to" tutorial vids using their products, a trip to the local park will supply the armatures for the trees twigs work ok covered or just go for the winter bare look.
Hope this helps.
Trees, especially good ones are not cheap, one source of the basic "framework" is often to be found in the garden. Certain shrubs grow into quite convincing tree shapes. Just add the appropriate Noch/Gaugemaster foliage and Voila!
One to look out for is Potentilla, a small/medium bushy plant, that needs cutting back regularly to stay neat. Ask around gardening friends...the plant has a compact branching habit. Another goody is commom thyme. Gardeners frequently pull out old gnarled plants in the spring when they replant . Old examples will make brilliant armatures.
