    Thanks. Let's see... I guess most of those main street lights are around 4" apart, but one of them is a little off, so 3"-5" on that one. I staggered them and tried to place them to light up the...

    Thanks,

    My big bushy trees are made from Supertrees. The conifers are all from Architrees on eBay. The skinny aspen-looking things are ones I made from pine broom twigs and flocking.

    If thinking about pre-made, I always look at HO scale trees. More realistic size to my eye.

    When I make them, I do various sizes, up to 5 or 6 inches high.

    Tubing works, but I recommend copper as it's much stiffer. The hole is small though, so you might have to use the tube as one of the conductors.

    I just found a small divot in my cutting mat and used that to hold it while drilling from above.

    As for fiber optic; I wish I had luck with that, but I can't get them to emit enough light.

    I had pretty good luck with the bigger shades and 0402 LEDs (prewired). Make a hole in the shade, thread them through, add a tiny dab of epoxy to hold everything in place.

    Those JTT cedar shingles are butted together at the top. They came together pretty clean so I didn't do a ridge cap.
