Eduard Leaves Palm II, 1/35-scale
photo-etch, (item 35616)
by Frank De Sisto
This set provides for a total of eight branches. The larger branches
are approximately 3.25-inches long, while the smaller are approximately
2.25-inches long. This makes them suitable for large trees in 1/35th-scale,
but they should be combined with the smaller branches from Eduard’s
previous Palm Leaves set for a more realistic look. The branches themselves
come in two different styles. One style is tapered to a point, while the
other is oblong (wider in the middle) with a large central vein.
These sets are relatively expensive if one is using them to model trees,
but if the modeler simply needs a few branches for a diorama or vignette
effect, then these sets are more cost effective.
Recommended with reservations.
