Default Metal cables - for small tanks

Im looking for some metal cables. Tow cables.

Ive been buying some but they are too thick and too long. They are copper, about 2mm in diameter, with eyelets where the straight bit is about 15mm. The whole thing is about 30 cm long. I guess they are Tiger cables.

Im looking for ones maybe half as long and about 1mm thick. Like the skinny plastic ones on a tiger maybe. But in metal.

Anyobe know of such things?

They would be about right but where would you get the eyelet things or whatever they are called?

HI google BLUESTUFF its a reusable moulding product and mould eyelets that are the correct size, or chop the eyelets off the thicker cable.

Example of how good BLUESTUFF is, grey is a 1/16 Trumpeter Panther kit eyelet and black is epoxy mixed with black paint moulded onto a cable.
