Eduard Leaves Maple/ javor (35620)
and Leaves Chesnut/ Katan (35636), photo-etched brass in 1/35–scale
by Frank De Sisto
Each of these two set contains two identical frets in un-plated brass.
There are no instructions, as none are really needed.
The Maple leaves come in six identical large branch groupings per fret
with several single, double and triple leaf groupings for added variety.
The Chestnut leaves come in six identical large branch groupings per fret
with several single, double and triple leaf clusters per fret as well.
These clusters of leaves are made up of five, six and seven members. All
of the leaves are relief etched so that they feature vein detail. When
properly painted and highlighted, they should appear quite convincing.
As with all of these types of sets, there are not enough leaves and branches
to make up a complete tree. And, purchasing enough sets to create an entire
tree would be quite costly. So, I suppose the best use for these kinds
of accessories is to garnish an AFV or piece of ordnance to give the appearance
of natural camouflage, or to show a few fallen branches in a diorama or
Both sets: recommended.
