In the book "On Miniature Wings", there's a few models where this method was 
used and to me, it just looks like a bit of tubing slipped on the wire, and 
not at all like a turnbuckle. I even once tried taking this method one step 
further with a piece of hypo tubing. I ground off the sides so it had that 
open center. And when I put it on the model, it looked like a bit of hypo 
tubing with the sides ground off and not really like a turnbuckle. I guess 
it looked better than nothing but not good enough to make enough to rig a 
complete biplane.
