The Model Tree Shop is where I've been getting mine for at least ten years.  Very helpful, lots of choices and good prices.  They are closed for their summer break until 1 August.

I buy my trees on EBay from one of several Chinese companies that do bags of trees for model railways at very reasonable prices.

Last batch of walls finished

A question for the forum, what Vallejo paint would be a good match for Oxford mix trousers in this period?

I have a better solution to your corner problem

Ask Leon nicely to cut you some MDF corner bases the same width as the ice lolly sticks. He did this for me when I had exactly the some conundrum as you.

I would also be tempted to use MDF bases for the walls as these will be far stronger than card. You can order custom sizes on the website. I think you find the small cost makes the lack of effort worthwhile.

Record for Pendraken to my front door here in NZ is 5 and a half days, if they beat that time consider it a good effort  :)

we are not now that strength which in old days
moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are.
