Outstanding, a certain 'must have' to go to the top of the shopping list. Thanks for the review Robert. I do agree, there is one major company missing from the Commercial posters, Van Nelle. Both for coffee and tobacco .... no Douwe Egberts coffee either. Still, there are some very useful posters included, the Verkade advert is one, and the Jaarbeurs, that is just brilliant. (if a little to early for WW II diorama's).

Hi Henk,

Thanks for your comments and the kind words. Just for the record, there is a Van Nelle poster on the sheet, 2nd row, 2nd poster from the left! Only 0,57 Dutch Guilders in these days for half a pound of coffee...
There are also many more Van Nelle signs (among other famous brands) on our Real Enamel Dutch Advertising signs:

Thank you for pointing that one out Olav. Some really nice stuff you have there. I just had a quick browse of the 'printed Street Signs' etc, the Dutch ones have been added to the list of 'Must haves'. I was going to spend the proceeds of my Panther on a Resin conversion for the M88, but I that will have to wait now. :-)
A quick question regards the wall paper and carpets (tapijten), are they 'scaled down' for 1/35, or are they similar to the ones you can buy for Dolls houses? Do you have to specify the scale when you order, or are they all one size?

Groeten

Hi Henk,

Yes the wall paper and carpets are 1/35 scale (although they could be used in other scales as there are big carpets and small carpets in real life) and are one size only.
Hope to hear from you soon!

Groet,
Olav
