A mature 60ft tree, which isn’t particularly tall, would be 10 inches in OO.

Two more pictures of my tress, you won't find them in the 'Book of Trees' :lol: The red arrowed ones are homemade the others off the shelf.

I think your home made ones look more natural. The problem with a lot of the "off the shelf" ones are that they are too symetrical and just dont look right (to me at least). I have seen some really beauiful hand made ones for sale at exibitions but the prices have been exorbitant.
