Oh yes. This kind of articles is my sustenance. Thanks for posting! I kind of hate Polyfiber though. It’s frustratingly water-repellent, and therefore PVA-repellent. Also a bit flimsy when teased out thin enough to look believable as a haze of small branches. If I could reinforce it with a diluted PVA wash I’d be mainlining the stuff in my terrain-building projects, but that’s where the water-repellent problem comes in. In any case, you’ve worked wonders with it! I like those tree armatures as well. Were they sold by Chinese online vendors, or are they part of the product range of some model railroad terrain company I don’t know about?


If you don’t feel like making your own, then just use the foliage nets made by the likes of Woodland Scenics – it’s what they use on their trees & a nice big bag will give you enough for a wood for, if not peanuts, then a packet or two of cashews! https://woodlandscenics.woodlandscenics.com/show/category/GCFoliage
