The idea was to have two wires stretch across the room, close to the wall and ceiling so it is out of the way. I was able to put the planes so high up because of the tall ceiling height.
I started by measuring the length of the room that the wire would cross, and how big my planes were so that I could have proper clearance for the tail/rudder. Next, I found steel "rope' or wire and had them cut it to length for me. Home Depot also has a kit for making loops with this steel wire and attached those to large eyelets. The eyelets then went into the wall with some plastic foundations and it was very sturdy. Before I routed all of the wire, I put pieces of acrylic tubing on the wire to soften the digging into the foam or hangar rash. If you tighten the wire enough, it won't sag as much and is not very noticeable because it does not expand the same as rope. I then experimented with different types of airplanes and wings, as it was designed for.
