87thScale.info does not
Sometimes you may want to add an antenna to your model, apart from using the obvious photo-etched antennas available there are several other possibilities (all gathered from the 87thScale.info messageboard).
- Cats whiskers ! (No need to cut them off, don't worry. They fall off every now and then, you just need to find them)
More commonly known (tips from Chester / Albert)
- a bristle from an old paint brush.
Other materials (tips from Skunk / Chester)
- the extremely fine copper wire found inside the
tiny fuses on the boards inside TV's and VCR's
Found by accident.... (tip from Chester)
- Quite by accident, I found another way to fabricate small antenae. I laid a hot glue gun on the workbench and it dripped onto the bench. When I pulled it away, the long thin strands hardened immediately into a terrific thin strand. Note: the slower you pull it away from the contact point, the thicker the strands.
