Busch Grain fields and reeds

What it is

Busch Grain fields and reeds is a 4,4cm tall natural fiber product that great resembles reeds or wheat. It comes packaged in a round band and the product is simply plucked from the band as you need it with the bottoms remaining together from a glue substance for easy handling and use.
USES

At 4,4cm it equals almost 1 3/4" which is plenty tall for even 1/35th scale. I see a lot of use for this product, from planting fields of wheat on a Kursk dio to use in dios of veit nam along rivers or rice patties to just making tall grasses. It can even be trimmed for use in shorter applications of tall grasses or weeds. It appears to be very user friendly in application with just using a simple pair of tweezers to pull it from the container and plant it. Some may argue or think it is almost like using paint brush bristles for tall grass. I think it appears a little more realistic.
In Conclusion

I feel Busch has a winner here and will surely use it on my next dio and also other future dios to come.
