1/12 scale ignition wires.
Posted by Skelly on Thursday, September 10, 2020 6:29 PM

Hi, all!

JUST got my kit of Italeri's Alfa Romeo 2300 Monza... ooooooohhhh!! 
I want to use something a little more realistic for igniton wires than the black tubing supplied in the kit. Does anyone know if there's a supplier of the old, cloth covered wire that has the black cloth "pattern" inbedded in the cloth, in 1/12 scale? I'm sure I've seen it available, but I'll be darned if I can remember where!! I've got a good memory, it's just short.....

Happy creating!!

It's not wire but you can try "bakers twine". Just brush on a few coats of flat clear acrylic to stiffen it up. Just Google colored bakers twine images lots of colors to choose from.

Me again! Just found the bakers twine and, boy o boy, it'll work just great! If I soak the black/white stuff in clear yellow stain, the white will take on the yellow, but the black will remain virtually untouched. Just the colour combo I'm looking for!!
70mach 1...... you rock!! Thanks again!
