Camo netting

What a good source for camo netting? Either premade or some non modelling
product that can substitute for it. Thanks

Never tried, so just a thought, but how about fishnet stockings?
Presumably some old ones to avoid the embarrasement of buying them new over the counter!

What about fine grade garden netting for keeping birds away from fruit crops ?

That mesh bag that citrus fruit comes in works pretty well.

Depending on the scale you're working on, but to me the best looking camo net are just plain cotton bandages, you should find them on any medical supply store. Easy to paint them also. Hope this'll help

Everybody seem to have their favourite... mine is sterile gauze or bandage rolls.

...and if you get some mil spec personal san kits, you have the gaze already in the right color - around 1980 I used exactly that stuff for the mentioned purpose of making camo nets for 1:87 and 1:96 scale dioramas; after mounting it on the standoff poles I used some dips of matte brown, green, and beige color to make the patches - and I used lead seal wire for making "nato wire" barriers (I'm not sure if I translated "Plombendraht" in the right way - forgive my insuffiffient English vocabulary :-). Oh - btw: The poles were made of the sprues a plastic modeller gets in plenty amounts... BTW2: for 1:144 scale and up I preferred dark nylons, simple straight wire and thinner sprues...
