    Nice one mate.

    ^ Much kudos to Azz. I've had some of these ideas floating around for ages but without his trunk concept I could never pull them off.

    great! best tree i have seen
  • jon 5y

    I like where this is going. An evolution in lego trees.
  • Karf Oohlu 5y

    Mind you, just make a koala, and the tree's guaranteed to be a gum : ))
  • Marco Tagliaferri 5y

    Looks very realistic. Well done.
    I like that collaboration and assistance is steady growing within the community!
  • akama1_lego 5y

    Still my fav of the trees, way more sparse than mine :)
  • Wolfy Tim 5y

    Brilliant. Do you mind if I use this design?
  • Tim Gould 5y

    As the comment suggests it's not really mine to allow... but go for it.
  • Wolfy Tim 5y

    Tim Gould I know this isn't your original design, but I'm interested in using this style more than the original (if that makes sense).
  • Ironsniper 5y

    Whoa, this is really cool. Really realistic. Great job!
  • Shannon Sproule 5y

    Great stuff man!
  • Peter Reid 5y

    Ah - the manifesto. Jolly good.
  • whateverly 5y

    Ah, lovely. Would you by any chance be planning a red tingle?
  • Brickd Blog 5y

    this is a fantastic creation! i featured it on my Lego design blog, Brickd.
  • Mike Pianta 5y

    Better than wonderful. You've managed to achieve that gum tree look of squiggly branches with clumps of foliage on the ends that I found elusive. The tall, straight, thin trunk is more prototypical too ;) Gums have fairly smooth bark (ghost gums, anyway)...is it feasible to make the trunk and branches mostly studless?
  • Tim Gould 5y

    Peter Reid I have to admit I lost the paper version of the manifesto but I think I've been going through most of it anyway. With luck it will turn up again. My desk is a pigsty.

    whateverly As fun as it would be I don't think I'm quite prepared to put the time or the 1000s of bricks into that. I did, however, learn what a red tingle was which was a plus. A very cool tree.

    Mike Pianta The plates are mostly structural so smoothing it out entirely could be hard. But any plate not attached to a branch could be replaced by a tile without issue.

    That's lovely
