You would think so, wouldn't you? However, I wouldn't bank on it as it has certainly never been true of any of the crude attempts made in 4mm scale that have been foisted on us down the years. And then they wonder why so few people seem to model overhead electrics!
Let's hope that this is all about to change, with both Dapol's efforts in 2mm and Peco's in 4mm.

'Impossible' is a dangerous word to use. 'Impractical' maybe...
Visibility is a secondary consideration. Personally, not having wires present would be completely unacceptable to me, merely on principle - but then I have never been inclined to take the easy option!
