I did not see a link to a website, so I'd like to know if these can be purchased in the States?

Hi

Firstly I must say a huge thanks to Andy for his review. I can tell from his text and photos he has given this project lots of thought and created a tree worthy of any dio.

In reply to your question Bill, Treemendus products are not available anywhere other than the UK at the moment. We are looking for agents overseas as Darren says in the "earth" review. However I do post to countries all over world and if you wanted to place an order for any Treemendus materials I can get you an accurate postal cost before you pay. Payment with Paypal is the best way to go I feel. Thanks for your interest.

PS The Treemendus website is ready for updating and is due for a re- vamp very soon.

Thanks Anthony. Its a great project and I am actually enjoying making trees, where I always dreaded it before .
I am now working on a couple of more trees (1/48th scale size ones) for a dio I am building, I shall post some pics of them tomorrow night.

Anthony - good to see your company name popping up.

I have purchased from you two years running now at Telford IPMS show, last year I bought the full tree kit though I've only experimented with the method a little having already started a diorama with my own tried and true method (which I might add, I can splice to yours for an interesting result) however the initial results were excellent with very little work involved in getting a convincing finish.

You can see your foliage products (both the cork type and the sponge you stocked previously) in use in my Normandy diorama thread. You get a big thumbs up from me for these products alone, they have been used to great effect and I am still using them constantly.

keep up the good work, I saw you were doing a trade at the Hinckley show recently and hope that you get your products out there with good success.

all the best

Hi Jon

Thanks for the post. I'm in Telford again this year. Hope to see you there.

I tend to only supply cork based scatters now as they result in a more realistic looking material for use as foliage.

In addition to the product info already posted I would like to add that the tree kits now come with a small bag of a scatter to be used as a way of highlighting certain areas to represent new growth etc. And that the 20 price includes UK postage and packaging.

Thanks for your orders
