I have tried stretching sprue and using floral wire. I guess I am too ham-handed to get it to work. Once I get the handrail positioned an upright breaks. Not just once but many times.
I thought about making a cone in the shape of the tower railing and forming the rails on that. But I am sure that I would just end up super-gluing the whole thing to the paper cone.
That's why I was hoping that somewhere out there was a PE set with the railing just waiting to be pulled into shape without my having to glue every freakin' joint.
I suppose I could cut out the rails in plastic card. I have a brand new circle cutter so I should be able to cut them very very thin. Then I could use the floral wire for the uprights . . .
P.S. For those of you who took this kit RC, how did you keep your rails from breaking every time you put out to sea??? These things are delicate! CA won't hold 'em and neither will liquid cement.
