After almost a year of silence , I like to tell about some experiments with making spruce trees for my Rena 1900 project. I may go into more detail later, but for now I have uploaded some pictures. I make the branches by etching and use a wooden tapered stick for the trunk. The branches are glued to the trunk and then all is airbrushed brownish grey. Then I spray with 3M spray mount and sprincle some fine ground foam. In the second picture I have used a photo of real trees as a background. I liked the result reasonable well, but after this test I see many improvement possibilities for making the trees faster and more airy.
