Completed 5 half-diameter pine trees for the space between the mine branch and backdrop



There will be additional trees in front of this track to blend the straight on view

Added new trees.....13 from the pine on the right to the end of the photo on the left in only 8” linear space. A scene drinks up trees pretty quickly. I’ve made 80 of these. I will probably make 1000 of these by the time I finish the scenery. I’ve made 50 pines. I figure I’ll need a few hundred of these as well.

Ugh. Trees....

What are you using for those? I hate to make life even more difficult, but I think they could use some supertree "bits" added to them to bulk up their branch structure a bit. That'll give each one more heft and may mean you need to make less of them.

What Ed said, although looking at the background, I think you need more evergreen trees and less deciduous trees.

Hope this helps,

in this area I have more deciduous trees in order to see thru to the track when switching the tipple.....

Then the real cheat would be to go with more evergreen trees but placed less densely, allowing you to see through.  Less dense = less trees = Win!
