Don't know if anyone has any access to this stuff but I come across it all the time in my line of work.

Fiber Optic Cable. I have come across 12 pair and 24 pair fiber optic cable that looks like it would be great to model wires, tubes and such on any type of figures. It gets discarded at work all the time because of replacement lines and converting from Multi-Mode to Single Mode.

I will be experimenting on my Cryx Mechs to see how it turns out. Very fine, colored and extremely strong with the insulation still on it. Can't break as it bends and will keep its curved shape when glued into place. It also can be painted as the insulation is the hard plastic that won't shed acrylics easily. Only down side is it cannot be shaped like wire. But I can use wire and Apoxie for that.

He who hesitates, ...is usually consumed!

Look twice, the first time was a second ago and if it didn't move, you didn't see it!
