Modelling Tip Of The Day – 41

This Modelling Tip Of The Day is an ongoing series, in which we’ll be posting a modelling tip that may be of use to the newbie right up to the seasoned modeller.

Today’s tip is:



Trees come in alsorts of varieties shapes & sizes. A fully grown mature tree such as an Oak tree scales out in 1:76 OO scale at around 32cm. With this in mind, many of us often end up using models of fully grown mature trees that are too small. In the photo gallery below are some real-life examples of fully grown trees. Note how some the trees tower above the two-story houses.

Looking at the photos you can see that the season is mid-summer. So obviously if modelling winter the trees would be bare, autumn various yellows browns & orange type colours. Springtime with new leaf growth, brighter lighter green colours. Mid-late summer darker green colours.

Look for the taller model trees when selecting models of mature trees, these often are found in the premium range brands of the various model scenic companies. You, of course, can make your own trees. In the video links below you’ll see how to have a go at making your own trees.
