I agree - father-in-law has one in his garden and this one looks just like it. Stick a pair of young children inside trying to climb it and it could be just like the real thing!

The four faces of a Willow
Same willow, just rotated 90 degrees between frames.

I'm happier with this although the earlier version with the light foliage seems to be alright.








I've tripled the foliage and used Noch green scatter for highlights.
The trunk has had a bit more attention too.
I reckon that'll do.

I like the extra foliage! Looks very good indeed! It'd look great near water.

Is it too late to stick my order in???
Seriously,though............Excellent tree.You can't beat home made.You can create exactly the tree you want.AND a sight cheaper than shop bought.
While we're at it,Marty,what is the origin of that telegraph pole??? Looks a lot better than the ones I've seen available in N gauge.
Cheers,John.B.

Have a look at this example of the real thing. If it was a model I would say it was overfoliaged but what do I know. I like some trunk showing, exactly like Marty's.

Willow Tree.

Marty - just caught up with this thread - absolutely fantastic tree. Looks just like the real thing. A brilliant effort - and, the beauty of weeping willows, is that you never see more than a few not like having to make a whole forest.

Excellent :wink:

Cracking job that, Marty! Not an easy subject to model, but I think you have captured it very well.

Sorry Bob - hadn't read through the thread properly and didn't see you'd already made this comment. Please ignore my repeat comment and put it down to pure stupidity !!! :oops: :oops:

If it's worth saying once then perhaps it's worth saying twice Petermac. :wink:

Top looking weeping willows, they look just like the ones we see when on one of our walks along the Thames near Walton on Thames.

Had a go too, like you using wire from some stripped cabling. Foliage is from Woodland Scenics Polyfiber coated on a mix of Anita Deor and Sylvia flocks. My colour is a little more late summer than the late spring ones in the 'real' shot.



Real ones on the Wey Navigation day before yesterday.........

Your photos don't work for me Chris, something about "photo not found".

Glad to hear you've had a go at a willow, looking forward to seeing the photos.

Pictures are working fine for me but I have to say that I think Marty's model is of the type of willow tree that most people think of when you say willow. I feel pretty sure that Chris's real life picture is of a different type. Mart's willow is Salix sepulcralis, the 'weeping willow' and the one most people are familiar with.
