Modelling Guide: Wiring
So, this cropped up while i was rebuilding parts of Adept Liwet and thought i'd give a quick headsup on how i'm redoing the power cables.
it's often written that to do make power cables and the like that you should use Guitar String. However, everyone's generally vague on *how* you use it and what kind to get and so on and so forth.
So i ventured into my local instrument shop and asked for a G-String ;D
so, once you've got your guitar wire and the miniature you want to wire-up (i suggest doing this before much of the conversion; guitar wire is stiff and you're more likely to break stuff off pushing it around! ), hold the wire alomgside where you want to have a power cable and snip off the appropriate length (adding a bit extra for flex/ attaching the wire)
Next, take a Decent Set Of Snips and carefully bite into the wire.
holding the cable firmly in place, it takes a bit of effort to bend the wire to the shape required.
from here you can add greenstuff around the joints to give the impression of cables slotted under the skin, or leave as is for that Bolted On look.
