I sometimes use the smallest Strutz materiel for bending into u/c vees, or 
if supporting a heavy resin wing, but find the ex-contrail stuff more 
useful - mainly since I prefer to work with plastic when I can. As Peter 
says, stretching this stuff is also very useful. There's a mix of sizes in 
both products. Strutz  is smaller in width, but thicker - too thick for 
most 1/72nd applications IMHO. You can get a pack of the Contrail stuff for 
smaller scales, with rod and tube included.
