Mantis Miniatures recently ventured into a new project line, supplying the modeling market with ultra-realistic ready-to-use natural branches designed for 1/35 scale ATV camouflage. This review covers the first 4 sets of branches in company catalogue – Pine branches, Leafy branches, Oak branches and Dry oak branches.

Thank You, Mario!

These should prove useful in any application in which modelers want to add "foliage camo" to their subjects!

Hm, the pine branches looks like static grass glued to roots or real branches, buy a bag of grass and you can make many. You can easily make the other leaves from punches like those from Greenstuff
I like their animal sets though
Cheers!

The pine needles should really be aligned in similar direction rather than pointing randomly; otherwise nice additions.
