My goodness, that is some wonderful scratch building you are doing there Ralph. Very clean and sharp work. And not to mention, you are making it look easy but I know for sure as it is not. Please, continue to post your work as it’s delightful.

Hi Mike.
Thank you very much for the wonderful compliment.

I still have to do all the plumbing on the bridge and the lifting mechanism. I have been looking for .5 mm flexible hose so that the bridge can be put in any position.

I still have a lot of scratch builds to post.

Cheers,
Ralph

Hey Ralph, you know there are a lot of hoses and tubes that guys in 1/25-1/24 vehicle modeling use and in many different sizes/style. You should look into it. Might find what you are after.

That’s scratchbuilding at its best!

Hi Mike

I found some in the US. The hose od is .75 mm and the shipping is ridiculous.

Hobby shops in Toronto Canada are scarce . There is a couple of RC ones.

I’m going to keep looking.

Tank you
Ralph.

Hi Oliver

Ralph,

Have you tried Great Hobbies? They’ve got a whack random bits and pieces when it comes to tubing and scratch stuff.

Physical shops in Oshawa and Mississauga if that’s more your speed.

absolutely amazing build, and even better for the comprehensive WIP pics

Hi Don

Thank you for the suggestion. All they carry is fuel line for nitro engines.
