EZ Line fine makes for some convincing barbed wire atop chain link fencing.

Here's some EZ Line fine on some homemade HO scale chainlink fence, think I'll go for a third strand next time.

Sorry I don't have a picture, but I used regular fiberglass window screen. Cut individual threads from the screen and the remaining cross-thread "nubbins" look for all the world like barbs. Miles of barbed wire for almost nothing !
