I've just been looking at two ship and one aircraft model I rigged with the 
stuff from White Ensign, which I understand to be the same stuff.

About 1 in 3 strands on the oldest model (2+ years???) have broken. The 
remaining parts of the brokken lengths are all no longer stretchy.

One strand on the aircraft (18 months old approx) has done the same.

Not happy. Is this stuff going to behave over time like the rubber stuff 
Aeroclub sold years ago and gradually fail like knicker elastic?
