Spitfire radio wire thickness

Recommended Posts

Has anyone worked out what the thickness of a Spitfire radio wire on a 1/48 scale aircraft would be ? 

It is simple math I guess, once you know what the real radio wire measured. I'm doing some research, but decided to use the forum, as this answer is probably in here somewhere !

I have to say that in modelling terms a scale wire would be impractical in 1/48. We're talking spider web scale. Let's just think of the trailing edge of a propeller in the same scale. In scale terms we're talking of razor edges. In the real world I've seen model aircraft wing trailing edges literally  the same as real wing trailing edges. 

Realistically it can't be realistic but what looks right.
