Long before comapanies like Detail Master started offering
us rubber-coated small-diameter spark plug wires for our
model engines, sewing thread was the order of the day.
Here Norman used red sewing thread that had been smoothed
by coating it with bee's wax for his plug wires. Those
nifty wire seperators were made by hand. The were no photoetched
parts suppliers in those days to make detailling model
cars easy. Norman had to drill
each line of holes a straight as he could in a thin sheet
of plastic, then hand file the seperator to shape.
