Camo net. Good enough for 1/35th-scale?

What do y’all think about these:

Useful or useless?
Way out of scale or within “tolerances”?

That looks spot on to me, I’d be ordering both.

Hell, for eight bucks I’d take the chance. That’s less than the cost of a bag of airport Chex Mix.

I’ve never ordered anything form AliExpress, is it reputable? Is it Chinese, or in the US?

AliExpress is definitely Chinese (part of AliBaba); it’s a Chinese version of eBay.

Thought it might be, it’s very much like the Temu site. Are they reputable? I heard bad things about Temu but ordered with PayPal and had zero issues with fairly quick delivery.

I have ordered three times from AliExpress (that’s why they send marketing e-mails to me 3 times per day).
One magnetic levitation & rotation globe (geography), a 1000 tiny magnetic balls and a set of three wall holders for wifi-routers (mesh network).
No issues, the magnets seemed to have gone missing, money returned they day after I asked for tracking info and then they turned up a two weeks later.

Looks like the AFV Club netting.

Its Barracuda Camo Nets. SAAB I think is the designer from Sweden. For 1:35 Camouflage nets I just use cheese clothes and some OD Green or black works good. I got a Hummel project with PE parts for the diorama. But im going to add some Camouflage netting on one side, and a rolled up tarp on the other side. I will use Milliputty or some plastic resin.

I’ve ordered several times from Aliexpress. Great prices on model kits. With free shipping on some to the US anyway Very well packaged . With very few issues.

Those look great to me. I’d order away as long as you pay by PayPal. I’ve had good dealings with AliExpress. Just waiting for the “slow boat from China” can be a 2-3 month grind.

Its always good to know people have had good engagement with these type of overseas firms.

I regularly buy scenicking products from Ali Express. Some very good stuff, and MUCH cheaper than Western equivalents (I suspect that some Western companies have their products made in China, and just repackage it). Usually very cheap, or free, shipping, but lengthy waits. Like ebay, I’ve never had a problem with Ali Express.
