hedgelaying

Postby TEZBEDZ » Thu Oct 18, 2012 1:23 pm

On photographs of Llanfyllin the hedging behind the signal box along the back of part of the layout appears to be a newly laid hedge.

On the model it will be about 12" in length.

I've been wondering how to model it, and one idea I had was Thyme stalks dried out and stripped of their leaves (kitchen for the use of)

Has anyone any other ideas about this, I am not sure if I have seen it modelled before, as it will have to be built from nothing onsite and I want to be able to see through it.

Whilst we age on the subject of strange requests, has anyone modelled a half relief greenhouse, if so how? My only thoughts are evergreen strip and clear polystyrene
Regards

Not sure about making one, but having just had our real one done, remember "fair face to the field, and lay up the hill". Or did hedging styles vary across the country, this was in Northants.

I would suggest looking at lots of pictures and also the right hedge for the area - frightening number of different ones and construction!! :?

This sight might help direction. :)

I managed to buy a couple of packets of fresh thyme and am amazed at the amount of stalks involved, I should be able to model the hedge and use it for bushes and undergrowth.

And, if you have a wife like mine, be able to make a pretty decent amount of raspberry and thyme jam from the bits that you don't need for railway modelling...
