Introduction
Laser-Cut minis are realistic miniature plants featuring laser-cut leaves and stalks, NOCH grass tuffs, and flocked with colored flower petals. They have unique shapes, fine printed details. Whether used for HO layouts or other scenery dioramas, it is easy to create realistic flowerbeds, gardens or garden plots on your model landscape.

Laser-Cut minis
NOCH uses laser technology to cut highly detailed models of flowers, reeds, cabbage, pole beans, ferns, nettles, and other plants. NOCH currently advertises more than 30 of these sets in three scales, HO, TT, and N. The mini-plants are ready to use, plant them right out of the package with a drop of glue.

Flowers in Flower Pots, 9 pcs.
These plants are securely packaged in a clear plastic container with individual cells for each of the 9 plants. The pack is stapled onto a sturdy eye-catching yellow card backing.

These plants are laser-cut from sturdy paper or made of grass tuffs. While NOCH advertises them for HO, they can pass for other scales.

Several model terracotta and other planter types hold the plants. Some pots feature designs. Being plastic the pots have a slight sheen. Consider dulling them down to simulate real pottery.

Conclusion
These Laser-Cut minis model flower pots look great! Colorful, unique shapes, fine petals, they really enhance a scene. Whether used for HO layouts or other scenery dioramas, these model flowers can enhance your scene. Highly recommended.
