Asian (well, Indian specifically) Scenery

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know a source of good quality scenic items suitable for Indian forests or tropical lands. 

I would prefer non-tropical landscaping (deciduous trees) but failing that any jungle terrain supplies would be useful. Scale needs to be 1/87.

I know that you can get some decent palm trees, but not sure what to use for other forest trees.

Also does anyone have suggestings for modelling elephant grass?

India is a big place, can you be a bit more specific?

might be worth while checking out miltary modelling suliers, but when I created my forest area for my MASH themed layout(Korea/Vietnam), I just used a mixture of cheap trees and various horse hair type material, fluffed out.

Are you doing an Indian themed layout? Would be interested to see it.

Regarding scenic items, when it comes to trees and so on, there's a lot of suppliers on eBay that sell trees as per your requirements. A lot of trees in Australia also match the trees in India. Look at a few Aussie suppliers. Regarding man-made scenic objects, I do have a few planned with my range of Indian Railway kits.

HTH?
