  • Best aluminum wire fencing?

    Looking to add wire fencing to the top of a few "walls"...what's the best stuff to use? The gutter guards I have are a bit flimsy and not very realistic looking anyway. Looking for aluminum type material to replicate a fence look...

    Thanks!

    Chris, whilst you wait for a better answer, it's worth looking through some of the recent threads in the Carerra forums - I recall someone posting some excellent pictures there of some fencing they had created from scratch (can anyone post a link to the proper thread I'm thinking about?).

        I shy away from actual metal, since it will be sharp and or snag things easily, so you have to fold the edge or put something over it, and ruining the look of it.
        If you have access to a 3d printer, there are some great fence designs out there, or you can design your own to your needs. If not, then you can probably get someone to print for you at a reasonable cost (wink wink).

          Lots of people use tule (fabric store) or nylon screen. Cut diagonally. Apparently the common nylon screen (like in my apartment) is more HO scale, but perhaps there's larger nylon mesh for other scales?

            Here's what I made. If soldered properly it can be very strong.

              Check out this video Jeff (Garage Maker Guy) uses kwik mesh and u-molding for the edges.

                He also lists out all the material he uses in the video but you may have to go to youtube and drop down the video info the get the material links.

                  Pretty cool and nice guard rail. I'd hate to see the body of the cars after hitting that cheese grater of a catch fence though!

                    Yep....well I guess it adds realism to the car damage. If you have any shelf queens dont race them into that fence....Only go around the track nicely as not to hurt them

                          I used K&S wire mesh from a local hardware store. The mesh was painted with gray primer, then a dusting of red primer to simulate rusting chain link fence.



                          I would avoid this type of fence if it had to be located where the cars might hit it.
                          For my HO track I used green plastic mesh from the Wal Mart hobby section.
