Jos,
Your tree models are breathtaking! Every one of them is a masterpiece!  You have the eye and the skills for making your miniature trees extremely realistic.

I have seem some construction drawings, and photo/written instructions you made explaining your tree-making techniques. That is helpful, but even more helpful would be seeing you actually making a tree.  Have you ever consider posting videos of you making model trees?  You mentioned that the Sitka spruce only took you 4 minutes. That would be perfect for an instructional video.

a better picture of the fast "sitka"(?) pine trees....(picture made by Philipe Schyns from  Belgium)
The trees are about 4 to 5 inches max.

I second what Pete said, a video showing your technique would be great.  Your scenery work is very inspirational and I always enjoy seeing the latest project.

Thanks Chuck

These trees were my inspiration....North west Canada
One string of thin floristic wire, as a trunk will do when using the "static"appl.! So the top of the tree will look very small/conical, will not end "abruptly".

Hi Jos, I have been admiring your work for some time, and although I can find lots of photos and even some how to articles, I have not yet found a YouTube video of you actually MAKING some of your wonderful trees. Do you have any clinics recorded that you could share?  I would love to see how you could make a tree of that quality (even in batches) in 4 minutes each!  :D
