Then threequarters of an hour with the hand fretsaw, a bit of work on a base,
Apologies for the lighting, but I think it shows the shape nicely. A quick undercoat, a coat of humbrol brown and green, gives us a tree,
The chap under the tree is Tradition 30mm Stadden figure, (I think it's the Duke of Cumberland) and he will be C-in-C of my Minden British troops eventually.
That, for the next 10 days, is that. Julia is insisting that I now go and help pack the caravan, as tomorrow we are of to the Loire Valley until Easter. If I can get fuel for the journey, that is. Isn't our government wonderful, possibly a tanker drivers strike, so they tell everyone not to panic buy, with the inevitable result of massive quese and garages running out! But I musn't start to rant.
See you in two weeks.
What a lovely tree! I have been starting to ponder the possibilities of flat scenery on small tables. I hadn't considered scratch building them.ReplyDelete
btw I also enjoyed your report on the view from your side of Brian's Big Wars battle. Sounds like a good way to get back into things.
Thank you for the kind comments.ReplyDelete
Bought trees are too expensive, I wanted something reasonably toy-like but realistic, and overall I should say it took about two hours, spread over a couple of days (waiting for glue and paint to dry). Sometime I will have to make quite a few more.
I admire your woodworking skills a very nice tree indeed !.ReplyDelete
Nice alternative Joppy! Looks good ... I have a scroll saw so maybe some background flats for my terrain board could become a future project. Thanks for posting ... JeffReplyDelete
An utterly glorious tree! Have an excellent holiday and perhaps a chance to plan the next hobby developments...ReplyDelete
What a nice tree. I think you've hit the mark with the "toy/classic' effect. Hand sawn and all, I'm impressed.ReplyDelete
A very nice piece of work and a unique item for your collection! Have a safe journey and a good holiday.ReplyDelete
Best wishes, Brian
