Any instructions for the hobby foliage? I've never used. Looks pretty great!

this is awesome. thanks for sharing.

Interesting choice you've made in choosing a solid volume for the foliage. Most models make the surface of that volume textured ready to paint (ie painted foliage) where you've deliberately left the surface blank for clump foliage to be adhered. It's a great idea and it's going to make me go back to look at all those textured trees I've been avoiding to see what they might look like dressed up as you've done. Cheers! Nice work!

Thank you! I haven't posted in a while, but in most of my new series of designs I've been focusing on using 3d printed elements in conjunction with other readily available materials in order to make larger landscape pieces more quickly and cheaply. Rather than printing whole buildings for example, I've been printing building corners with slots that fit foam core board. The foam core is cheap and looks nice when painted. Plus you can 3D print accessories like doors, shut windows, pipes, and vents and hot glue them right on. The other benefit is that you can cut your foam core to the needed size and adjust easily for large and multi floor buildings.

They look great I think I'll try some for my layout.
