OK here go's Idon't know if this has been passed down yet in here but if you are building a locomotive or caboose that needs a firecracker antenna you probably have the material's somewhere around the house it is as simple as a piece of telephone wire!! cut it strip insulation to the bottom of antenna the antenna body is about an 1 8th of an inch or a bit shorter i just cut one that looks right and the wire from the bottom of antenna make a more pliable base than soft metals or plastic i have used both and have broken both!! I have applied this to models for years and haven't broken one yet!!!!! and if ya loose one no biggie! heck just a foot of telephone wire gives you many antennas at least 70 with total length body and stalk!
