Thanks for the Link as an alternative. It seems that my link and yours are the same product line.

Hi Brad,

yes, these are really nice. I used one for my Roland Walfisch build but sliced a mat in half so I can use the other for another build (but smaller aircraft?). Expensive but I think actually good value for money considering their realistic appearance.

cheers,

GrahamB

This is taken from model-scene's homepage and should be up-to-date:

Unlikely.  This thread is very old now if you look at the discussion dates, and I think the Polak mats been gone for a long time now.  I spoke at length to the distributor indicated in Brad's original link from this thread fairly recently, and he said these are no more and that Polak are "having troubles" and "no response from them."  The Polak website is still up, but no way to get them anywhere unless you somehow get one from someone used/old.  You'll have to go with some other base, it looks like.

I visited my Local Hobby Store the other day and was surprised to see a tufted grass mat! Needless to say I spent the $32.00  :o It is by a German company called BUSCH. They have a web site at: www.busch-model.com

Also just for giggles I searched tower Hobbies and found these products by Bachmann.

@ $17.00 and change. They look OK from the photos on the site. I will also take some shots of the Busch product today.
