Chain Link Fence – Model Railroad Scenery

A cheap and very easy way of making very realistic chain link fence, not only with simple galvanized steel wire but I’ll also show a simple way of making a styrene version as well. Techniques can be applied to HO scale, N scale, O scale and more. This fence will look fantastic on any model railway layout, diorama or even on war gaming terrain and architectural models.
