What is the spool made of? The red section looks almost elastic?

the spool was  made from a tamiya gear set. it was a different kind of plastic and I had issues gluing it and sanding it smooth. the red wire is silver plastic wire painted red, it has small fine threads attached to it. ..couldnt find anything closer to duplicate the real thing. I ended remaking the frame for the spool twice, it was too tall for the cabin. I wanted to also paint the spool separately from the frame and that created a bunch of issues in the building process.
