introduction

Maple trees are found all over the world. Model Scene presents you with three types of laser-cut maple leaves for 1:32 - 1:35 scale. Cut from paper, these realistic leaves are applicable mainly for use in dioramas. Most of these Realistic Leaves series are available in three scales: 1:32 - 1:35, 1:45 - 1:48, and 1:72 - 1:87.

These leaves are packed in a small, hard plastic box.

Autumn maple leaves

This 1:32 - 1:35 scale set provides you with 150 maple leaves. They are beautifully cut and have the stem embossed in them. The stem is slightly oversized. Representing leaves in the dry, dying days of autumn, each leaf has a subtle difference in its color pattern.

Now you can simulate Fall by spreading the leaves upon the diorama ground, mimic leaves falling on vehicles, or for the adventurous, glue them to branches!

To demonstrate the appearance of this product, I have sprinkled these leaves onto, and around, a 1/35 armored car.

conclusion

I am glad that Model Scenes' large and growing product range includes this product. No need to simulate leaves with non-specific kitchen herbs. These beautiful leaves will enrich any diorama. Recommend.

Please remember, when contacting retailers or manufacturers, to mention that you saw their products highlighted here - on Armorama.

I'm a professional pilot with a degree in art. My first model was an AMT semi dump truck. Then Monogram's Lunar Lander right after the lunar landing. Next, Revell's 1/32 Bf-109G...cried havoc and released the dogs of modeling! My interests--if built before 1900, or after 1955, then I proba...
