Here is another old diorama with a scratch build cottage.

I built this because I was inspired by this picture.

UserPostedImage

House was constructed with cereal box cardboard, the kind from Costco and braced with 1/8" beams. Exterior walls were covered with Bar Mills shingles. Windows and doors are by Tichy.

The diorama base was constructed with pink isolation foam. rockface was carved onto the foam and cover with modeling paste.

Final results and hope you like it.

Hi Elsleuth1,

I used Scenic Express Super Tree. When I got the kit, I sorted out the branches. Some will have the right shape of a tree and you can just add your favorite flocks to them. I use Noch leaf, Scenic Express super leaf, Heki and Woodland Scenic flocks. The only issue here is that the branches lower half are a bit too thin for my taste. If I am not too lazy, I will add a layer of hot glue to make it thicker. Once the glue is dried, I spread on modeling paste and texture and paint accordingly.

Another method is to glue smaller branches of super tree to plastic tree trunks. Here is a good tutorial.

I also use dried bloom broom to make smaller trees. Remove the dried buds from the branches. Hot glue a bunch of them together to form the upper part of a tree. For lower part, I use tooth picks or bamboo sticks.

Here is a useful thread I visit often to get ideas. Hope this help.
