Lead wire.

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I have seen and heard of many modellers using lead wire for added details. Where do I get it? is it just like soldering wire? or is it like fishing line? I have been looking for it up here in the great white north, and cant't find it. Cabbalas in the US has a nice assorted set, but thats in the states.

Edit: Oh, I see you wanted a Canadian source. Can't help you there...

Try a fly fishing shop. There are 0.035, .030, 0.025, 0.020, 0.015 inches for weighting flies. I don't know if yours would be metric! There should be both lead and lead free choices.

Yep, flyfishing shop is your best bet, NOT a tackle shop. They should also have colored copper wire, makes things easier WRT not having to paint.

Dumb question, but is it lead as in lead weight, or lead like leed?
