    I do allot of military modeling and have found some pretty cool stuff that could be used in HO or N scale model railroading. Here are the 1st 3 items I thought of.

    1). Chain, this stuff is nicely photo etched and is tiny. You just twist it a bit when you go to use it and it's killer.

    Thanks, Blake. I have several HO size Johnny Lightning military vehicles that I've been wanting to mount on flat cars. That chain is just the ticket because it will stay straight and look tight.
