[WWI] EZ Line

Sad to relate, D, there are no theme parks in Adams, Mass, where EZ Line’s world HQ is located (in fact, there’s not much there at all, not since the mills closed forty years ago). But FYI the gent who owns it also has a small company that produces electronic gear for model railroaders which he’s trying to sell, in case any Listee is interested in buying an established business and happens to like train-thingies.

I’m wondering whether it’s the way to go for 1:72, though, after comments that even the Fine may be too heavy. Last time I rigged a biplane I used a silver-gray thread I got in a fly-fishing shop, which I believe is called tippet. I have the tail-end of the spool, so maybe I’ll take it to Cabela’s an ask them for an equivalent.

In fact, Vinnie manages the whole park, and several gambling joints in the vicinity of Northern New York.
He also can paint houses, and does his own carpentry.

If Cousin Vinnie has retired from finger chopping, maybe he could get a job at the EZ Rigging Ride O Fun using his chopper to cut rigging pieces for the tourists.

Any chance to visit personally the EZ line headquarters? I can picture a large industrial plant, several laboratories of rigging, a test field where modellers are given new products to conduct rigging in simulated hobby sheds under a variety of conditions (rainy days, warm days, rigging in the wee hours of the morning with sleep deprivation, rigging while the missus is asking for fixing the damn toilet, etc.). It might be interesting if they have a company museum and see ancient examples of model rigging with catgut, with wool, with forged steel and with bakelite strands.
It can be a holiday with family and you can ride the Rigging Ride O'Fun, where you can rig a biplane for prizes!
Let us know if you get quarantined afterwards.

Hi All, I was just poking around looking for info on rigging—something I haven’t attempted in 25years—and, intrigued by what I read about EZ Line, went to their website to check it out. Turns out he’s located just up at the other end of Berkshire County (the U.S.A. one, not the real one, we say “BERK-sheer” in this neck of the woods, not “BARK-sheer”).

If I get some, what color(s)/size(s) am I looking for? He has Fine/Heavy, in white, black, green, rust, tan, and “French blue”, which last he recommends for a/c.
