While doing a current Panther build I came across the cables supplied by Tamiya which were just plain bad both in length and how to be mounted on the build. So I ran to Hobby Lobby and found these to build my own.

Looks like I will be building alot of cables for some past builds.

Was there supposed to be a link or a photo?

I have very thin copper wire which I will string out and twist together to make a nice tow cable. I will just fold the wire back on itself to build up the strands and then I twist. Just have to channel out a notch on the kit provided eye hooks and paint!
