I think onion/apple/pears etc net scales at about 1 yard square holes at 1/72 so people could pass through, the Garlic mesh might scale about 1 foot at 1/72, tights might scale at a more realistic 4" at 1/72, or warship scale net might be a better bet

I think that the packagings of apples pears onions and other vegetables are techniques of the previous century

Dimension an euro = dimension an pound


It is necessary to work with materials of today  .

I agree with you  Gazou.

The whole problem has been one of stretching material.  It looks still on-going but it's certainly a challenge. I am now worried about attaching said net to  'sticking out'  bars, at an angle all around the circumference of the flight deck.

 I will take some pictures of the materials I have along with a 1:75 model person, later,  when I finish my clerical work on here.   tehe

cheers

Brilliant, Gazou.  Thank you very much.

I have copied it to my drawings section and will use this design and way of doing things.

Here is the net just stretched and laid out on the poles.  (didn't know how to attach it, but I do now)  :-))

I have the little man looking at it from above.    {-)

I then cut out the rear deck with an access hole as I will need to work in there later.

Ken it'slooking good.
Tell the domestic manager that you want to go organic.
The onions come in Brown nets which look more authentic.

Thank you for pointers.  yes, it is proving a problem. I do need a finer net so I'll be researching this further.

It does look like  1mm  might be the maximum gap.  I am looking for a rigid material now because any net  (by virtue of it's design) will stretch.

I have jumped this part of the build and got on by starting the crane.  I did one before on the  Gry Matitha  that I've built and just loved working out the motors to bring it to life. Pictures will follow as I progress.

Cheers

This may be of no use at all , at a railway show the other week and there was a guy selling photo etch mesh panels for  the Deltic Locos ,so envy photo etch shop would do any size . The only thing it might look a bit clinical as you would not get the natural sag of net .

Screen door mesh. I have a heap here and it measures approx. 1.5mm square. And it was cheap by the meter from a hardware store.

I bought some 0.5mm stainless mesh for my build. Its fine for the treadplates that I needed to make up.

At 1/72nd scale  a 4inch hole works out to 1.4mm so using flyscreen mesh would be ok for that. But if you wanted rigidity, you can get the mesh in sizes up to 2mm. Mine came from ebay, a model engineer supplier. The only problem with using it is that you epoxy to bond it to other stuff like plastruct section. I framed mine with 1.1mm plastruct, it can be seen in post 95 .......

That could be just the job Brian.  Thank you.  I shall look into it.

Maybe be able blend it with some curtains John.   :}

No pictures today as the crane has more lattice work than a Victorian boudoir. Hundreds of tiny sections keeping me very busy  !

This section has taken some time.   %)   The crane.   O0

After cutting masses of little pieces and struts, here is the boom section nearly ready. I've used 2mm plastic card for a more rigid support.
