Some wiring and plumbing tips 1/24 & 1/25
Posted by jhande on Wednesday, July 1, 2020 10:18 AM

I've been building model cars on and off for 50+ years and have been asked a lot about what to use for different under hood wiring and plumbing. So I thought I'd make a quick post just for a basic starting point. Hope it helps someone. Smile

You could use the 30awg stranded wire from Remington Industries for spark plug wires but the OD is .032 which is a bit bigger than the specified 0.01 above. I like using single strand wire, it's easier to work with.
