More bushes in Port Rowan

Today felt like a day to do something positive and creative, so I built and planted bushes in Port Rowan – in the meadow and along the backdrop.

I made my bushes from Super Tree material and my sadly-dwindling supply of Selkirk Scenery leaves. I then glued them into the scene with Weld Bond. Occasionally, I would poke a hole in my foam board terrain for the main stem of the bush, to keep it upright. But mostly, the glue will hold them upright in the static grass.

I’ve now finished the line of bushes behind the team track, between the orchard and the station. I’m really pleased with how this softens the line between layout and backdrop.

  1. Trevor,

    The bushes are looking good. They just add another texture and some more natural colors to the scene. Keep the updates coming ,as I do check back often.
