Reality in Small Carpets on Real Cloth

Reality in Scale (RiS) seems to find new mediums with which to use for modeling products.  Here, they offer a large sheet of fibrous paper onto which they have printed carpet designs.

The rather large sheet.

A rather large sheet, one quarter of an A4 aheet in size, is found inside a ©Ziploc bag with a paper insert which has the instructions for use.  The paper is rather thick and, learning from my experience with their real cloth products, I have used sharp scissors to cut the design.  There is a sticky paper backing to it which needs removal.

There are 35 designs on this sheet as can be seen int he first photograph. 

Close up.

The second is a close up which shows the fibers.  

After cutting the design out, I will use glue to apply it to the surface I wish.

Care needs to be exercised if using them under figures as the fibers can lift a figure up.  In order to convey an illusion of weight, pin any figures through the carpets.

It is a nice update.  It is the best in this medium so far.

My thanks to RiS for the sample.

AFV Club T62 M4 Sherman Tracks for Standard Chassis

AFV Club continues to release track sets for various Sherman vehicles.  This set is for the standard chassis such as opposed to the earlier set which was released for the long chassis such as the M4A4 or M4A6 based Sherman tanks.

Sherman tracks in blister packing.
The blister package can be seen in photo 1.  This packaging is attractive as it allows the modeler to see what he or she is buying even if they do not know the proper nomenclature for the track.  Also, the cardboard header clearly means that one may find this set hanging from a pegboard at the local hobby shop.
