Out of curiosity, approximately how old are you? I ask, based on eyesight as you age.

I don't think I can convey how impressive the fine detail work is with just words.  Really enjoyable. Thanks for sharing.

Love the WNW kits.  I just don’t have the patience for something like that though.  Your build is impressive!  Keep it up!!

The Brits used aerodynamic flying wires on many of their aircraft including the Dolphin. WnW instructions called out 0.1x0.3mm in 1/32 scale

I found resistance wire in 0.4x0.1 mm

In contrast, I used nylon thread in the Felixstowe Flying boat earlier in this thread.

Exquisite sir, look at Berkshire junctions elastic wire. It’s amazing stuff made for rigging etc.

But he is looking for the prototypical correct flat flying wires (used on camels, pups, SE-5,etc)
There were some made for specific WNW kits by a RB productions from Eastern Europe.    But those photo etch parts are very rare now

It is actually like a miniature rubber band, flat and stretches 700%.
