|Media and Contents:

Foliage can be an important part of
any diorama and there are many ways to depict it.
One option is to use photo-etched
accessories and this is the approach Hauler recommends.

The foliage of two different types
of tree is represented in these examples.
HLX48039 covers the oak tree and
this packet contains a single fret with forty one “branches”. Each
of these contains nine leaves which can then be posed in any number
of ways. The stems are ultra thin so you wouldn’t want to change
your mind too often when arranging their display.
HLX48040 is devoted to the linden tree and as expected the leaves
are a lot smaller. Ten “sprigs” are supplied with three clusters of
either nine or thirteen leaves emanating from each one. A further
twenty four “twigs” are provided of the nine-leaf variety. Once
again the fine scale-like appearance will call for careful
positioning so as not to break the attachment points.
These sets offer an excellent way
to provide foliage for your latest diorama base or for the vehicles
themselves. In fact their flexibility would make them an ideal
candidate for use on individual soldiers.
The small size of the subject matter means that one can use them to
replicate other species of trees, not just the ones quoted, and
their use is limited only by ones imagination.
