August progress

Posted on September 1, 2015. Filed under: Monthly progress |

Trees and grass. Grass and trees. And trains.

Scenery 23 150830       Next stop Bonar Bridge

This picture was taken at the end of July. As I write this post at the end of August, the tree count has reached 45 and I’m bushed! I’m not sure any more whether this is a trunk route or a branch line. As for grass, it will need cutting before the rain sets in.

And Kyle of Sutherland will soon be on its travels.

Loved seeing your model in Culrain Village Hall today, Stuart, and enjoyed our chat. Could you remind me of the names of the people who advised you how to create the model trees and produce professional dioramas.

Good luck with your future exhibitions.

Marlyn Price, Lairg

Thanks Marlyn, glad you enjoyed it.

I mainly used the techniques of Gordon Gravett to make the trees. I went on his course at Pendon Museum and later bought his three books: “Modelling Trees Part One – Broadleaf Trees”, “Part Two – Conifers”, and “Modelling Grassland and Landscape Detailing”. I also made lots of use of Barry Norman’s book “Landscape Modelling”. All books published by Wild Swan Publications Ltd.

More recently, I’ve made much use of the perspective modelling techniques of Paul Bambrick, see, and went on his course at Missenden Abbey. Paul is launching his book on the subject in November 2015 at the Warley National Model Railway Exhibition.

Happy modelling!
