Rubber Plantation Trees?

Post by Nick B »

I want to build a sizeable rubber plantation both for Malaya WW2 and for Vietnam (for my ANZACs to play in).

Did my paint fume fuddled brain dream it or did Mr Clarke do a tutorial once? I can't find it so if it actually exists and some one can point to it I'd be grateful!

Otherwise anyone built a plantation or know a good quality model tree which would do - looking for around 18cm tall or there abouts?

No. I just use some suitable model trees and base them in rows. In truth, my ones are less established plantations. The more ancient ones become very dark with a dense canopy and are riddled with vines. However, that doesn’t work very easily on the tabletop.

Ah, thanks Rich. I'd better stop sniffing those paint fumes!

Any recommended sources for the trees, please?

@Capt Fortier - thanks. Lots of palms and bannana but no rubber trees (tall slender trees with no branches lower down).
