My friend, Anders Isaksson, sent me these photos of Eduards photo etched camouflage nets. They are a way simpler solution than making your own but in my opinion they really doesn´t look like the original. The shape is a bit simplified, and I´m not too convinced about the colour either. But to be honest, they might look better in reality, when used in some sort of context, and I guess they can be repainted. I will probably pick them up when I get the chance and try them out (I´m far to lazy to make my own, Ingvar Sylegård-style!). I am also looking forward to Anders Strf 90 with the netting on. Be sure to send is the pics, Anders 😀

Still waiting.. by Erik Gustavsson
My package from Lucky Models have now been out there, alone in the world, for a whole month. I hate this waiting..
He who waits for something good.. by Erik Gustavsson
..always waits for too long.
Some lucky people have already begun receiving their HobbyFan Pbv 302’s. This unlucky b***rd is still waiting for the box to finish it´s journey from Hong Kong to Sweden.
Whenever it arrives, however, you can be sure that it will be reveiwed on this site.
CV9040C is coming this year by Erik Gustavsson
It has been rumored for some time that the CV9040C, the up armoured version of the Strf 9040 that has seen international service in Liberia and currently in Afghanistan was on the way in 1/35.
Apparently Hobby Boss is showing off some cad-renderings at the Nuremberg Spielwarenmesse, as Kjell Svensson is tipsing us about here.
Sven’s next project by Erik Gustavsson
Just wanted to give the heads up on the latest project from the PW author, Sven Young. A tank trailer for his splendid M3 scout car in swedish kongo-service. I hope we’ll see both of them here soon. See the progress on the IPMS Stockholm website.
New site feature – Notices by Erik Gustavsson
Here we can post short newsflashes that we don´t want to display large on the main part of the front page. It can be used to link to interesting finds on the web, small news or comments.

Have you checked out the Echelon versions of the cammo nets? They work like decals, I have a couple in my stash, but have not tried them yet,. Let me know if you would like to check one out, I can send you a sheet for you to review.
One example (they sell 4 different sets, two patterns in two different colours):
No, I haven´t seen the echelon nets. We discussed them, Anders and I, but I could not find them on the website, so I thought they were out of production. I wasn´t looking hard enough I guess.
I think I´ll have to buy a set from each manufacturer to try them out to give a real verdict. But for swedish armour I believe both sets could use some improvement regarding the colours. I wonder if it would be possible to paint the Echelon nettings before removing them from the backing paper?
That’s a good question, not sure if it is possible to paint them whilst they are still on the backing paper. You never know, it might work. I aöso wish they were printed in Swedish colours. Perhaps the guys at Echelon could do a Swedish set. They have released several other Swedish decal sets
