Sorry so small, I got that from somebody who got it from another.....
But I think it says 1/4 inch tubing and .025 wire. Just get whatever looks right, I think anything larger than that would look too big.
Also you want the wire to fit nicely inside and not move around too much

No prob, I like to see threads on here that are actually related to models and not a big bitch fest like most of the shit posted here these days.
PM me if you need anyhting else.

I've never heard of anyone who uses this technique but I use bread tie wire for hinges and they work dam well. I have always had a hard time getting real hinges to fit right and when you do get them done they stick out like a sore thumb and don’t look real at all. Bread tie wire remains completely hidden and lets you position your doors and trunks open or closed with ease.



This model is using bread tie wire for hinges.
