    More plant pics

    Here are a few more pics showing different plant species on my New Guinea vignette. :cool:

    The figure is 150mm but the plants are supposed to be 1/35th scale.

    To my eye;) , they simply look like young small plants that would grow on the steep muddy bank of a swamp.:)

    My favourite shot is No. 4.;) ;)

    Note the rain drop, and how the leaf bends naturally with the weight.:cool: :cool: :cool:

    This paper plant was washed with white glue, and the rain drop was a dilute mix of Woodland Scenic's Realistic Water and water.:D

    Hope you like.:)

    Cheers

    I'm Japanese.
    I contacted an owner of this manufacturer.
    That was performed by E-mail.
    He had almost no knowledge about a historical-figure.
    He seems to have been thinking to use for the scene of AFV.
    I use it a little, too.
    Elitist's viking
    Andrea's 90mm figure
    These appear on this site.
    That doesn't have a very too good reputation of this product in Japan.
    The reputation which isn't the price corresponding to the amount is most.
    In other words, it's too expensive.
    2 paper seats are about 10 dollars.
    This is when it was converted into the price of Japan.
    When being imported, the price would rise more.
    There is another problem.
    A new product will be that it doesn't appear so immediately that everyone thinks.
    Development of goods is very slowly paced.
    This manufacturer is saying so in the site about these things.

    The machine we use can produce only a seat of 2 an hour.
    This machine is very expensive and is the machine difficult to handle.
    I make a noise occur in the evening, so a machine is stopped.
    So we can produce only a seat of 16 per 8 hours.
    When the price isn't raised, it isn't formed as a business.
    Everyone might be astonished that paper is this much expensive, but those ones used the most advanced technology, and were made.
    A jungle pack succeeded.
    I think it'll be because it was probably much.
    But there is no profit of these product in case of and us.
    Recognition to something we call paper may be a different one.
    If it's possible, because it's paper, can't you get me the prejudice which would be inexpensive?

    Such thing is written.
    I said to an owner that it was liked by a fan of a figure, but He does't know this industry, so an sales strategy isn't made.
    A Japanese (miniature park) is treating.
    I think it can't be bought besides that up to now.
    That it can be bought seems to be only Japanese....

    Hi Mitsutaka,

    If I understand you correctly, the company that makes these products has a reputation in Japan for being expensive and slow to produce its products.

    I don't know anything about that, so I won't comment.

    My only negative comment about this product is that the instructions are all written in Japanese. It would be very helpful if they were also in English.

    As for the price, I paid approximately A$15 (roughly US$14) for the Jungle Plants set and $10 for the weeds and ivy.

    As far as I'm concerned the paper plants were a very good investment, are superbly realistic and detailed and I definitely will buy and make more.

    Cheers

    Thank you very much, tonydawe.
    I thank as Japanese.
    I, a little, the claim, they seem to have gone too far.
    But well, I'm dependent on this manufacturer, too.
    Because there are no substitutes.
    I'll hand your request down to an owner.
    (I think but a wish isn't probably granted....)
     this is only the difference between the paper and the metal.
    I think these products are perfect when dealing with there somehow.
    By the way, the address of the miniature park is this.

    http://www.miniature-park.com/

     Introduction of a product will be person's Japanese site.

    Sorry, that might be my fault, busso boy.
    About 30 sets arrived here in Denmark over the last couple of weeks!
    Soon you won´t be able to see my Dinosaurs for the woods.
