    displaying mines on artificial grass mats

    just thought it was a cool idea... have a pretty decent collection now but really need to get it out of boxes and display it properly. these are sample mats I got - thought to eventually get new display cases and lay out mines (and maybe grens etc) on mats like these (would need bigger ones though).




    thought this would show them in their 'natural environment' (yes I know most mines would be buried - the PFM-1 at least would lie atop the ground though being a scattered mine).

    You can sometimes find ‘end of roll’ offcuts in garden centres and maybe in DIY stores that sell lengths cut off the roll.
    Wanted: Baton/Irritant rounds (inert) and associated items, .700 NE (inert) and boxes (empty), .32-40 cartridge boxes (empty), WW2 British shotgun cartridge boxes (empty), Greener Police Gun cartridge boxes (empty). Message me if you have any of these items for sale/trade.

    The closer the background color is to the item you want to photograph, the more detail you will see on the item too!

    That is a great idea! Looks awesome.

    Like others have said, stores like, HOME DEPOT, carry this in many different colors and often sell small rolls. Still, it is not expensive at all. For under $20, you can get giant piece! It is useably sold by the liner foot too, so if the roll is 12 feet long, and you buy one foot, you get a 1' x12' roll. The Home Depot, down the road has about 8 different choices.
