    I think hosiery is going to be too fine. I want it to be visually identifiable as netting (albeit out of scale). Hoping to get over to Michael's today and check out some stuff.

    I've tried using that stuff for fencing (was unimpressed), but it might work as netting. I'll have to swing by Joann Fabrics and take another look at it.

    Anybody ever come across one? I see that Faller makes one that's motorized and actually drives around, but that's a bit more than I need :rolleyes:
