Michael's jewelry section. There are like 70 pieces in the package. I also have found for making black bungees hair bands at my local dollar store. The colored one are from Michael's also. Craft stores have a lot of items you can use.

Wanted to share a find I found at Staples. It is a storage box that comes in various sizes and colors it is pretty inexpensive. This one is 3 1/4 x 2 1/2 x 2.

Did a little update for my cargo netting.

Old style net

Redone netting. Borrowed a tip from Dr. Frankenstyle (I hope you don't mind) for the hooks. These do give it a more scale look. The hooks can be a little of a pain to work with.

Sweet! Looks good. Mind? NOT at ALL Happy to see some of my insanity spreading. That's why I share ... and yep, the little coils can be a bit of a pita, but hey if it was too easy, I'd find another hobby.

I was sold on the netting before, but after the update, Wow Dude! it looks money now. Great job cleaning it up! Unless I'm mistaken, Mk I was clearly done using knots, but in Mk 2 it looks like you have some how done away with them. Would you mind going into a bit more detail explaining what took place there?

I definitely second the craft store deal. Our local Micheal's has become one of my first go to's for scale stuff. Lots of treasure to be had under that roof

Looking forward to what you come up with next

For the outside loops I sewed the ends together and then sipped some shrink wrap over the ends to keep it clean. For the middle sections I tied them together and then put a dab of superglue on to keep knots from coming loose. Then I borrowed the idea from Dr. Frankenstyle for the connectors because they do look more scale.

I made a post quite awhile back, silly as it sounds, the doll section at hobby lobby is a small treasure trove of scale accessories. Much of this came from there.

Great ideas. Thanks for sharing. I'll have to find the bungee hook idea. I've been using part clips and bending them but those look way better than mine.
