The Rubicon stowage has a series of cable ends that suggests 0.8mm copper wire or 'similar thread'. Has anyone had luck finding either of these?

I used a "heavy" thread from the wife's sewing, stiffened with super glue. Seems to work out alright.

you can buy thicker thread for ship models, in various sizes, i have used this for tow cables ect on 1/72 & 1/56th models.
