Tetra Model Works has entered the fray in an attempt to hide your model, or just add some interesting stowage.
Tetra Model Works has announced their intention to release camouflage netting material in three colours, white, green and tan. Each net is 150mm X 220mm or if you prefer 6 inches x 8.5inches and so of a reasonable size. I will say that I am unwilling to comment on the accuracy of this product until I see a larger image of the material used, but it does show promise in the picture where the sheets are overlaid. No price is currently available from Tetra Model Works.

How well does the paint hold up when manipulating the net? does it flake if you bunch it up?

Why would it do that? This is Eduard's special treatment of their brass, not a coat of paint you put on yourself. Cheers, Christophe

If you work their prepainted seatbelts too much or make too sharp of a bend/twist/crease, the paint flakes off. That's why I asked.

So far Jason I've used it on five models, and maybe on two occasions I spotted a little brass dot in my photos. I just touched it up with a spot of black paint but it seems to hold up really well. The key is to work in small sections so you only have to bend it a minimum amount of times. This net on my Saxon is probably six separate pieces stacked and overlapped, which only helps to add to the depth. No flaked paint on this one that I recall. Working in small sections also allows you to shape it to the contours of your surface so it rests naturally and doesn't look all stiff and rigid floating above the surface. It will also hold its shape like on this RG gunners station.

Hi; While Im not attempting to steal this post; Why not make your own Camo,-nets ! Its easy, and A Lot Cheaper if you use Gause Soaked in A 50/50 mix of Water & White Glue. And if you want too make it A Folage type of net, then just add parsley or orragino flakes, for small leaves just Crush-up some of the parsley. Now you can use Two methods, soak the gause in the water mix and then position it on the vehicle. When I use this first method, I take A measured section of the gause and I wad it up and let it soak in the mix for A Few seconds, and then I can unfold the net and place it anywhere on the vehicle, and while its still wet it can be made too conform in any way ! Second; When I want A Folage type of net, then you can use Two methods also; Place the parsley in the water mix and let it soak until the parsley becomes soft, and then you can add it too the top of the net, or you can add the parsley too the net while its still wet. You can add just A Lil, or A Lot for A Real-Leafy type of net. Note; The Gause will Dry real Hard and Fast so be prepard and once it Dry's on your vehicle its there too stay, and it Dry's Flat and takes to Paint Well.-- O.K. Again; I did not attend too steal anyone's thread, or Knock anyone's product or Method !!!! CHEERS; MIKE.

I just noticed this thread.. the netting looks good. Mike.. I remember learning the gauze method you're talking about way back in the eighties from Verlinden books.. It's a great and easy method for the traditional netting material.. but the problem is that it doesn't work for this modern Baracuda netting material. Hisham
