Birch Trees yet again.

Since I am still rebuilding my terrain after the move and after a few tests I have finally settled down on individually based trees.  Here are the finished Birch using the toot that I authored on Terragenesis. Linkey  New basing though.  They are on heavy washers and there are at least six different types of ground effects on each base.  I will probably do another ten or so stands later.  Hope you like.

 I also received a little package today.  More plastic for my pile of plastic and metal.  Whooot.

Build something 15 #7

Pine trees done.  Twisted wire with twine branches, sawdust flock, spraypaint prime, watered down PVA and some Woodland Scenics snow.  Overall cost approx  £0.20 and some time per tree.  I think that the snow came out well.

Build something 15 #6

Some more details and some groundwork that only took two days to dry.  I still have to add some more ground and then onto painting.

Build something 15 #3

I had an hour and a half this morning so I decided to make the radial engine and some of the supports for both the engine and undercarriage.  I also managed to putty the body up.  I will work on the wiring tomorrow.  Posting the rest on LAF.
Hope you like.

Build something 15 post #2

Snow day today so I could not prime any of my trees.  I decided to work on the Aerosled that I was going to sneak onto the base to spice the lake up.  Here is the main reference image that I am using.
Here is what I came up with this afternoon.  Built in stencil paper.
It still needs some (read quite a bit) of gap filling and then I have to build the rest of it. 
Hope you like.

"Build Something" 15 on LAF

I have entered the "Build Something" competition on the Lead Adventure Forum.  The competition theme is Fire and Ice.  The build can be either or both but the base has to be bigger than 50mmX50mm.  I am going to try something that I have never attempted before.  I am going to do snow and ice terrain.  I am building a frozen lake.  Last night I built some trees and today I have roughed up the iced over lake.  The pine trees are standard bristle brush pines off my tree jig.  The copper wire for the other trees was donated to the project by my boss as was the plexiglass that is going to be the surface of the lake.  Hope you like.

I will be posting the images here but the descriptions are going to be on my thread on LAF.
