Does anyone have any ideas about a DIY Drag Christmas Tree? I'm making a 1:64 Scale Drag Racing Diorama and the only thing I can find on Evil Bay is $13. With this being my first Diorama, would like to keep it on the cheap side. Any/All ideas are appreciated.

Can't help you with the "cheap" part but I bought a dragstrip diorama in 1/64 from my Mac Tools distributor. It's really cool.

Yea I had seen that too. Really awesome. I was looking at some Lego's a big ago and think that just might be the way to go. Just cut to size, paint black and paint the bulbs in and attach to Dio with Balsa Wood.

I bet if you go to Michael's or a craft store like that, you'll find little rhinestones or something that would look like christmas tree lights in 1/64. The tree on my set is pretty small so it shouldn't be hard to make one.
