I have just been using Infini Superfine 1/72 Aero Black Rigging 0.055mm for rigging aircraft and found it worked really well.
See Sopwith Swallow.
I have now also used the 1/48 version and it works just as well.

Hi Zak,
Thankyou for the information. I might try some of that myself, as I use EZ-line and find that can sometime have a flat appearance when stretched.
Cheers,
Bigkev

Hi All,

Kits KWB 48/72/144 - 485, World Planked Wood Revetment Sheet 1/72 

Just got this from Hannants. It is a vinyl diorama sheet of planked wood to be used in revetments/airfields. It comes as a vinyl sheet in a rolled form, which can be peeled off the backing and affixed to a base of your choice. The sheet is approximately 17in x 17in. On examination, the printing is very good, with good colour density. It is a little glossy, but once attached it should be easy to tone it down with a coat of your favourite Matt Varnish.
The packaging states it can be cut into smaller sections as desired to match your base/model.
Cost was £8.99 plus postage from Hannants.
Cheers
Bigkev

Do you get different sized planks for different scales, or is it one fits all?

I us this stuff a lot, it's brilliant, if anyone wants to try some without having to splash the cash, sing out.

Hi Zak, all the same size planks. I assume 1/48 and 1/144 packs the planks are smaller or larger to suit.

I was confused as the labelling seemed to suggest it was for all those scales.

Yes, me too.
Probably best to look at Hannants website for the other types of diorama packs by kits world.

Hi Zak,
Where did you buy yours and about how much is it?
