I'm about to start my Tiran 5 I'm going to do some basic detail up like wiring, fuel line, metal gun barrel and tracks.I've got .48mm brass sheet and some .4mm plastic card that I could probably use.

Thanks Henry

Nice wiring work there. Looking very good. I'd fill the hole the conduit is going into on the hull deck, just there near the driver's hatch. This is going to be GOOD

You really need the fuel lines. It won’t go anywhere without them. Dry simple to do with the wire

Picture framing shop, hardware shop or the Warehouse should have some picture hanging wire. Works a treat for cables.
