How to make a "braille scale" barbed wire (by Hakan Karlı)

Hello everyone,

There's an article today .. Hakan Karlı has developed a new technique for making 1/72 scale barbed wire.  Interesting and easy method.  Thank you for sharing Hakan...

1- Find an IDE/Floppy cable from an old computer like this one:

2- Peel off one it's channels and remove whatever fibers remaining intact:

3- Get your soldering iron:

4- Find some toothpicks, matches, plastic sticks or similar and drill couple of holes on each of them, then drive fibers which you took outta ide cable thru these holes..

5- Use soldering iron to create tiny little "barbs" over the cables like this:

6- Then fix these spikes via glue otherwise they'll fall off annoying the hell outta you.

7- Voila!! This here be our barbed wire..

Paint as you like, cheers...
