This young company is looking good. Their stuff looks like it is good quality and relatively inexpensive. These dead trees would look good in a forest setting as they show an advanced state of decompositon.
Thanks for the review for these products and bring them to our attention.

Last week, when I ran the News Report on J's Work, I must admit to being impressed at the range they offer. Going to the Lucky Model website, I was equally impressed with the prices of their product line.

An introduction to what the company has on offer can be seen:

Thanks Jim.
It was your news/review that alerted me to these guys and I followed your link and was even more pleased. I just couldn't remember who wrote the last news/review but now that I know it was you, thanks to both you and James for highlighting this company. I'm definately looking at their molds for bricks and tiles as well as their paper products. $5.00 for silicon molds is an excellent price and won't break the bank next payday.

Cheers, John

The only disappointing thing about them is they sold out very quickly in some categories. I hope Luckymodel will get more supplies in.

Nice review, James!

Agreed. I checked them out on Lucky Model ... especially fo their brick silicon-mould. None left. I would have picked one of these on the spot. A cobble stone variant as well and Id have a great set for buildings and rubble. The tiles are not my cup of tea though.

Frank, I just sent out a cobblestone mold to be reviewed (and a tile one), looked very interesting in the package. Hopefully these will be available soon as I'd like to get one too.

I just ordered some of the grass, ivy and leaves from LM and will try and get a quick look at those posted too. As for the tree stumps, I'm very impressed with them and can't wait to start painting them up

I agree their products do look good. I'm not big into dioramas yet, but I think many of these products are worth picking up for test purposes8

I love random little items like these, and can be used in other modelling applications such as Warhammer, fantasy, etc.

I'm definitely picking up some of their stuff, especially the grass and foliage for my current work bench project. I love little companies like this that care about the customer and also care about the quality of their products.
