Leaf Foliage Set, 4 different green colours
Item: 07167
Series: PROFI
Intended scales: H0-1/87,TT-1/120,N-1/160


Leaf Foliage Set, 4 different green colours
This set is four finely cut leaf flock material in four different shades of green. The colors are olive, light green, mid-green, dark green.

These leaves are packed in sealed plastic bags that are held in a plastic blister stapled to a heavy card backing. The instructions, in several languages, are printed on the back.

These leaves are cut in elliptic and ovate shapes. While I don't see any purposely cut with stems, some seem to have slivers that look stem-like. When you shake these out you get full leaves and detritus.

I applied these leaves to PROFI Nature Tree armatures, as well as to improve an old Woodland Scenics foam foliage tree. To prevent a toy-like appearance I mixed one or more of the leaf colors together in varying ratios.

Conclusion
These leaves look good. NOCH also makes an set of autumn colors.

These look good and I recommend them.

We thank NOCH for providing this leaf set for review. Please tell vendors and retailers that you saw it here - on RailRoadModeling.

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...
