most any PSU will have 16 or 18 gauge wire with crap ones using 20 gauge. for DC there is no difference between solid or stranded wire except stranded is a little thicker to compensate for the air; the wire can't be wound tight enough to squeeze it all out - if that makes sense. thicker wire strands are used more often for PSUs because it makes "dressing" them easier being stiffer; they stay in place better than a more flexible wire that is comprised of more thinner strands.
you're fine using the modelling wire
