Video tutorial: Scale Model Basics - How to stretch sprue for antennas and rigging

I thought it might be useful to share some really basic, fundamental model making skills - how to stretch sprue to make scale antennas, aerials, rigging for biplanes or rigging for ships and naval vessels. I was worried that it was too fundamental, too basic, but the reception it has received so far on YouTube is pretty positive and it seems that some modellers out there are open to getting a better understanding of the fundamentals.

Stretching sprue - it doesn't get much more fundamental! Best of all - it's free.

It's one of the very first "non-box" modifications that most modellers make, one of the first added details that doesn't come with a piece in the kit.

My video shows you how to stretch sprue easily and consistently. Good luck, and enjoy!

This is literally five minutes work.
