Eduard Leaves, Ivy, (35711), and
Leaves, Locust Tree (35717)
by Frank De Sisto
Both photo-etched brass in 1/35th-scale. Contains two identical frets
and no instructions. Price: $19.95 USD.
Each set has two identical frets in un-plated brass. The Ivy leaves contain
15 discreet branches, each approximately 2.5-inches long. The leaves are
quite tiny, being slightly less than 1mm long or wide. This may make them
useful for smaller scales. Regardless, they will look fine, once painted
and affixed to a wall or building.
The Locust Tree leaves contain six large branch groups per fret, each
about 1.5-inches long and 1.5-inches wide. There are several smaller clusters
as well featuring one and three leaf clusters each. Again, since the leaves
are small, they may lend themselves to use in the smaller scales.
Both sets: recommended.
