Vegetation and flora.

The main subject on the scene will be the century tree. We will build it using the wire technique.
View attachment 273990

We have been recollecting some different colour leaves, as some dried flowers and similar as well, that we expect use during the build.
We are looking for real vegetation as much as possible...

IMG_0090.JPG IMG_0091.JPG IMG_0092.JPG Well...I can call it build. ;)
I'm afraid to paint it by the moment, so I will leave for a while, and once I've been practiced again....I will go for it ;)

It's a good kit and all fits perfect.
Maybe the PE are quite difficult to work, but I haven't any tool for them, so....
Just watch out and take your time with the steering, there is some complicated step there.

The quality on the both kids is like an abysm.....so different :eek:
They said the kit has "upgraded moulds"....but nothing works so well. Maybe I prefer the old one!!

On the photo you can see the difference.
The upper one is the new piece. The other is the genuine.

After some deliverance I decided to build my own shelf ...
The skeleton will have less weight and I can build it at my taste. By the other side, will be more practical for working on the electrical installation too.

More or less this one will be the structure;)
(Is not glued yet)
