Thanks for the review Roman!

It looks really nice stuff. Lavender fits very well with a French tank. The H0 scale scenery materials offer lots of possibilities for the 1/72 (terrain) modelers among us.

Nice review. Thanks for taking the time to put lavender plants on an actual base.

Don't limit the use of these to just small scale builds.

I use the Noch grass clumps (in several different colors) to add variety in the vegetation on my 1/35 scale builds. Nature comes in all sizes.

The Noch products are also pretty easy to source since you can get your LHS to order them through their model RR product vendors. You can order them VFR direct from Walthers, too.

Noch also does a series of tree leaf materials for flocking that are quite nice and useful, too. These are small paper "leaves" that come in several different colors, quite different from the fibrous materials with ground foam that Woodland Scenics and others sell.

This product lends quite a splash of nature to otherwise drab military subjects. Here's a review of the paper leaves: http://www.kitmaker.net/modules.php?op=modload&name=Reviews&file=index&req=showcontent&id=8777

"...they do not smell like real lavender..." :-) Maybe NOCH's R&D will add that!
