Working on a West German force for a TY type game in 6mm so I needed to add some camo nets. After seeing some recommended methods I decided to give them a trial and see the results. I got out the green stuff and created some mock turrets with paperclips for the barrels. [URL=]

[/URL] Bottom Left to Top Right…. Green Stuff, Foam, Tissue, Dryer Sheet, Cotton, Florist foam, Squadron putty, Aves.
L-R Green Stuff, Aves, Squadron, Foam with super glue, Florist Foam with White Glue
Florist Foam again, Cotton, Tissue, Dryer Sheet.
C in C and mm ruler for scale.

I like the Aves or Squadron the best. The Aves can be rolled very flat. I hope this helps.

Great stuff, thanks! I've also heard people recommend women's stalkings/pantyhose cut and rolled up. Would be interesting to see that if possible.

You can't do better than cheesecloth or medical gauze.

I use fine-mesh gauze dyed olive green (dye a couple of rolls for a lifetime supply) and then stick dried oregano to it in irregular patterns with superglue (smells good!).

But that's 1/72 scale. Might be a bit big for 6mm? Evebn finer gauze and crush the herbs a bit?

Use a razor to finely slice the foam packing from the CinC boxes, super glue onto the gun tube or turret and paint green and brown as appropriate.

I think gauze is the way to go myself: Unfold a 3x3 and spray paint it a camo green, cut the size you need when it is dry and soak in a dilute white glue/water mix. Roll it or place it where you want and it's good to go. Will post some photos when I get a chance.

Super easy and looks really good…

Medical gauze and dilute glue has worked quite well for me.
