I have purchased and used them only on 1:72 models but there are 1:48
sizes- They take a bit of work to learn but then are fine- You cut to size
with a Dremel- including V's and also the attachment points- They form a
rigid support that is better than Contrail strut stuff.I've even managed to
do the N's for the Albatross interplane struts.
I havn't on the other hand, learned to solder the stuff which one would
have to do with booms like in the FE- In fact I made a considerable mess
trying to do so.
