I started out with just the paper sails and then this happened….. link

Ain't that a bit thick though?

Perhaps (fishing)line of suitable thickness might be a better choice? Less prone to snap than very thin stretched sprue…

Anton, the idea is good but as Lonkka said, I think is a bit thick. Personally I recommend to rig this ship monofilament plyamide thread, works very well with the superglue.

Good job in the brig!

Would polyamide sewing thread work? Btw, the ships look lovely, Anton.

Pulled sprue would work too. I use that a lot.

Bowmam. The problem with the polyamide sewing thread is that it is bright, then you would have to apply some ink to remove the shine.

Virtual- if you read the article- that is pulled sprue. Looks nice! I don't know if I mind the thickness, really.

It looks really good. A win.

I've followed Admiral Anton's model building for many years now [his blog]. He is a genius. There is a reason for what he does.

Great job, Maestro!

Sorry… I did indeed miss that. It is an art in itself that I have only recently mastered. I can get it to thinner than thread if I am careful, and it has made a big difference.
