Matho Models from Belgium produces an interesting range of products that will enhance your next diorama or vignette project. They offer a nice range of items in resin, photo-etch, plaster, etc., and in a variety of scales. They're a relatively new business so the product line is still growing. Check out their web page or eBay store.
In this release, Matho Models has produced a set of photo-etched gates in 1/35 scale which can be used in your choice of diorama settings including those produced by MiniArt but where the injection-molded gates are too brittle to work with. One of the limitations of photo-etch is part thickness and it might be nice if Matho Models included two or three frets of the same gate parts to allow for the parts to be laminated together to obtain scale thickness and durability.
In any case, this set provides some nice alternatives to enhance an existing diorama (or diorama kit) or to add missing details to one you're building from scratch. Check this set and other options available from their website.
My sincere thanks to Matho Models for this review sample!
