Ultra Realistic Trees - Cheap Trees That Look Amazing! - Model Scenery


(Comments posted here are more likely to get a response 😉)


There’s no cheaper way to make a forest full of trees than finding the perfect armature on the side of the road… However most of the time you find great looking twigs they are either the wrong shape or don’t have enough smaller branches to make a good small scale tree!

That’s where this tutorial comes to help, the technique I use here to make these great looking HO scale trees can also be used on any type of tree making exercise whether you are using twigs from the garden, super trees you purchased or even using the plastic tree armatures made by many manufacturers like Woodland Scenics.

If you're after the tool that I use to hold the tree (third hand soldering station) you can purchase them from 'Micro-Mark', they sell a range of tools for hobbyists and this is a very useful tool to have at your disposal.

Also don't forget to use the promo code 'boulder' when shopping at Micro-Mark and you will be able to save 10% of your order.

The main tip you’ll probably find from this video is the usefulness of Baking powder and Super Glue… There are literally a hundred different modelling applications we could use with these two products used together.

Extra Files:

Additional content that will help you recreate and follow along with the build, some of the 3D printer files are still experimental and may require some tinkering in order to get them to print successfully. Also, nearly all of the 3D printer files are designed for resin 3D printers, trying to print them using a filament 3D printer may not be possible!

But in any case, I hope you enjoy the extra content.
