Do you put antennas on the models?

I have been adding to my British but they do tend to get knocked off

Bristles from synthetic paint brushes.

Sometimes. 0.5mm brass.

Yes …

Thin brass wire or trimmed broom bristles.

Cat whiskers can work, too (if you have a cat). They do shed these regularly, so no cats were harmed by the practice ;-)

While they do look very nice, they make storage and handling problematical, unless they are made of a flexible material that can be removed.

I usually don't apply them to my vehicles because of that.

Unless at very close range, they are rarely visible.

I bought one of these at daiso, it's a perfect round bristle, and cheap

gotta use something soft and flexible like broom bristles.

wires have a habit of stabbing you in the palm.

No. Not worth the hassle.
