Hi!

I am going to do finnish diorama with Sturmgeschutz. The problem is those spruce trees. In finnish forests there are all most only spruce trees. I need quite fast way to make them. Its slow and hard to make them of wire. I need some easy way to make those and i hope somebody can help me. The scale I use is 1/35.

I have made trees using a method very similar to the one described at TOKE's Link. Check out the dio here: http://www.ipmsgreatplains.com/Gallery_BobKerr.htm

The smaller trees are made from sumac "flowers" with green static grass "needles." I like the look, but the size is limited to about 6 inches -- the max length of the sumac "flower."
