    Nice Mark! I might have chosen a different colour scheme on Maximowitz's bird but well done all the same.

    What did you use for antenna wire on the F-8? Looks really good.

    Thanks! I painted the A8 as per decal manufacturer's instructions, before I knew better. The F8 antenna wire is probably Smoke color "invisible thread" from fabric shop.

    As I suspected. We've been discussing antenna wire in another thread (no pun intended) and the stuff you're using is what I'm planning to use in future.

    Though I have used stretched sprue of various colors, and the invisible thread, the late J.D. Spearman used a lycra thread utilized by scale railroaders for replicating power/telephone lines. This also looks great, stays taught, and is easy to install. Unfortunately, I can't find any.
