I need a wire fence for my set, like this:
scale of 1:6 –about 1/2 inch sized holes.
I can't find it anywhere.
I found only this:
But the parts here are soldered and not woven.
Anyone has an idea?
Thanks a lot
McNichols has several options...
I did try to make it myself with nails, but it didn't came out straight, it was very hard to control the wires when I was fitting them together.
Would aviary mesh do it? You would have to turn it 45 degrees, and it is welded, not linked, but comes in 1/2" size.
Otherwise persevere with making it. The nail positions would need to be precise, maybe drill them first, and something like copper wire would wrap round ok.
You could probably use a flexible plastic mesh. What is it they sell in that stuff at grocery stores? Fruit? I'm not sure, but you know what I mean, right? Some gray or silver paint might fix it right up. Or maybe just some cloth netting. Maybe it's time to order some fishnet pantyhose?
Or wait - gardening supply stores sell various kinds of mesh and netting to protect gardens from animals. That might be just the ticket.
In case of making it, you can try with aluminium wire, it's very soft and friendly to handle and doesn't come back from the position you give it.
I've used the aluminum wire and nails-in-a-board technique before. It is quite time consuming, but can yield good results with practice.
It depends on how close you want to get to it, too. The diamond wire mesh you linked to does look pretty close. Just pulling on the edges with stretch the mesh out and make the diamond shapes more square.
