Ground Cover

Ausfwerks 1/35 Ground Cover First Look

By Michael Benolkin

Date of Review May 2006 Manufacturer Ausfwerks
Subject Ground Cover Scale 1/35
Kit Number 501 Primary Media Real seeds
Pros Very realistic maple leaves Cons
Skill Level Basic MSRP (USD) $5.00

First Look

Here is a first (for me at least) in 1/35 scale - a bag of scale leaves! This represents a nice batch of Herbst (Autumn) maple leaves that would look natural not only on the ground, but also on any parked vehicles near the trees.

Ground Cover

While I don't know how much there is in this bag, but I can safely say that it will provide reasonable coverage for several smaller (vignette) displays or a fair-sized Herbst diorama. Good on Ausfwerks for successfully adding a long-missing touch of autumn to our projects!

My sincere thanks to Ausfwerks for this review sample!
