The JRD had a good meet last Saturday with Chuck Hladik giving a hands on clinic on the topic of making trees using the fiber material over a crepe myrtle set of branches. The method is effective and straight forward producing an very nice result that would look good on any layout of the appropriate scale at a relatively inexpensive price. The crepe myrtle branches might be the toughest thing to find and I may have to seek a source of supply for myself. The fill that is used for the canopy is usually available in craft stores before Halloween as it is used for decorations. Perhaps I can persuade to move forward and make some trees.

Remember that we have a meeting this Saturday in Lymchburg. Learn how to make trees for your layout with our hands on clinic with Chuck Hladik. You will be able to take one home.
The modeling theme is a freight car with graffiti. If you have one please bring it to share with others your creation.
For those traveling down US 29 please remember there is a music festival in Nelson County and this may cause traffic issues so allow extra time or adjust your route.
Hope to see you there and please check the Meeting Page for details.
