Manwah Leaf Puncher - Review

Hey plamo nerds! Here's a quick review on one of the new tools available in the shop - the Manwah leaf puncher! The punchers come in 4 designs: Birch, Oak, Maple and Cherry, and are used to make tiny leaves for scale model dioramas. Jump in if you want to know more about how they work!

For this review, I'm using the Birch variant. The item comes in a carded pack, with some colored paper which I believe is a limited bonus for first run orders.

The puncher itself has 4 sizes of cutouts, so you can choose which size best suits the scale of your project. They are advertised as suitable for 1/72 up to 1/16 scale, except for the Cherry variant which only punches one size.

To use, simply insert the colored paper and press down, the same way you would use a regular puncher or stapler. The leaf cutouts should fall out of the bottom, so it would be a good idea to work in a flat tray and away from a fan that might blow away the leaves.


The puncher works best with stiff paper or actual dried leaves, so the cutouts have nice edges with minimal fraying. I used the smallest cutouts for my recent diorama, adding some fallen leaves to the base for added realism and dramatic effect. The figure shown here is around 1/35 scale.

These leaf punchers are great for adding that extra bit of realism to your military, mecha or tabletop miniatures bases and dioramas! If you want to try them out, they are available for preorder on the shop page, under All Products.

That's all for today! Until next time, keep building plamo!
