Ok, so I know I should have paid more attention in H.O.! But what is kdf wing beading made of? My old 50 deluxe beading is cream & black plastic moulded together, but kdf wont be plastic. Ideas?
Thankyou in advance from MrsSanta. 😃

Your 50 should be made of cloth, not plastic. Don't know about a KDF, but I would expect cloth as well.

Gary Constantine of Brezelwerks sells good repro split wingbeading if you want some...

Seeing as all my wings are old but incorrect, I did doubt the wing beading was right, I had thought it a bit early for plastic.
That beading looks a really good price and kind of answers my fabric question. I think I am going to make mine along with some other things in the same fabric though, just need to hunt it out!

I seem to recall that KdF beading was different than that run of the mill split stuff. Can't remember the details though. Email Christian at Hessisch- he'll know 🙂
