Elastic Rigging

  • Product Name : E-Z Line
  • Manufacturer : Berkshire Junction


E-Z Line is a flexible, elastic thread, originally made for scale model railroads as electric and telephone wires, has many uses in the scale model hobby.

E-Z Line comes in 100ft (30.5m) rolls, two thicknesses, Fine (0.010 / 0.25mm) and Heavy (0.020 / 0.5mm) and several colors to fit many different applications.

This product is very useful for radio wires on WW2 or newer aircraft, rigging and control wires on WW1 aeroplanes and rigging on naval vessels.

Pros: E-Z Line easily attaches with a small amount of CA glue and has an amazing amount of stretch, so while working on your project, if you happen to press on or bump the wire, there is almost no risk of breaking the wire or the parts it is attached to. Two different sizes and six color options to suit and build

Cons: E-Z Line is not UV stable, so if exposed to sunlight for a length of time, it will eventually deteriorate.



If you are looking for a versatile rigging product with several uses for a wide range of scale models, give Berkshire Junction E-Z Line a try. Easier and more forgiving than fishing line or stretched sprue.
