A bit more detail, then a final touch up with paint and pens.

Black copper enameled wire which allows me to pre-form the shapes.

So many questions - What gauge is it and where did you find it?

Its a Japanese product for flower arranging.  I bought my roll in a Japanese "Pound shop" in Kuala Lumpur.  :)

I have had it for years but this is the first large scale use I have found for it.  I'm always on the lookout for special or unusual materials or tools, even on holiday.

All the hydraulic pipes have now been added and I have given them a coat of gloss varnish to smooth the FUD and to give me a good surface for transfers, which are next.  Following that a few details will be added with paint before a satin varnish.  Its a slow process as the varnish needs 24 hours to dry on each side before handling.

I have some different gauge flower arranging wire in my kit. I bought bundles of foot long lengths off ebay for a few pounds - Nots sure what the thinnest is, but I guess it will be of a similar gauge. I've mainly used it to support 'forest in a box' trees. Oh, and thicker stuff for drain pipes etc.

I think it is probably is a soft iron type material but its coated in green plastic. Not had any issues with it rusting. Especially the drainpipes because they gat painted anyway. I really like it for its ability to bend easily and hold its shape.
Loving the HOBC tho. Feel free to come and run it through Northallerton anytime  :D

My rough calculations suggest the longest road we have in the fiddle yard is 13 foot. Is that enough?
