Incredible Realism

...for Z-Scale too!

This heavy gauge (0.010" thick) fret contains an assortment of highly detailed bare tree armatures that can easily be formed into 3-dimensional trees. Using 5 simple steps, in about 15 minutes time, a tree can be produced to such a level of realism that it will look spectacular in any detailed setting even without foliage! Finally, you can have bare trees in winter scenes (click on the Example button above), or add some dead or dying trees for variety. With the addition of foliage, these trees become absolutely dazzling in their detailed likeness to the real thing. Please check out our other Examples below. This fret contains the following: 4 trees, 22 N-scale feet tall, 5 trees, 20 feet tall, and 8 trees, 14 feet tall. The slightly higher cost of these frets is due to the thicker high-purity brass stock that is used to produce them.

In this fret we have slightly different height trees. There are 13 trees, 16 scale-feet tall, and 12 trees, 18 feet tall. With a total of 25 trees, this fret would be great to make a small orchard next to a farmhouse. How about placing them every 50 scale feet along a town street. Ideal for smaller deciduous trees like Aspen, Alder or Birch for intermixing with pine or fir trees.

Bare Tree Frames

set 'A'

This fret is a variation on set 'A' above with different tree shapes in different quantities. It contains 12 trees, 14 scale feet tall, and 7 trees, 20 feet tall. Each of the frets have several tree frames that are identical on that fret. It's worth noting that even with two identical tree frames, it would be very difficult to produce two identical trees. The slight variations in the bending processes from tree to tree produce sufficient differences to give each a unique appearance. Add to this, the fact that each can be positioned  so it is viewed from a slightly different side or angle, and each will be totally distinctive.

This fret contains our largest tree frames. There are 5 trees, 35 scale-feet tall. These majestic beauties can be formed into many different varieties such as hardwoods like Oak or Walnut, or used as a foundation for a Willow, Maple, Sycamore or Cottonwood. Use one as a focal point in a town square. How about next to a farmhouse with a tire swing hanging from one of the branches? Lots of possibilities.
