- STW Modellers – where can I get this?
Hi! Know there are a few model makers and people good at making stuff on here!
I’ve been trying to find something to replace some parts on a model plane I’ve been trying to re-build and not having much luck finding the parts.
What I’m after is some plastic rod, about 4-5mm in diameter,about 60mm long and ideally with a 1mm hole running through it?
I need something to hold and space out the servo tray in the model, which originally had 4 plastic struts that screwed to the tray one end, and then to the base of the fuselage on the other? If not plastic then something in aliminium would do,
Any idea where I could find this, or what I could use instead? Cheers!Posted 4 years agotragically1969Member
CPC or Maplin will be cheaper than RS thoughPosted 4 years agonickjbSubscriber
A bit of m3 studding and some nuts and washers will do it. Nylon will probably be good enough but steel or brass won’t be much heavier.
If you really want to do it as the diagram then just buy some rod, cut it to length and drill the ends. You won’t get it dead central without a lathe but you should be able to get it close enough. ebay is good for short lengths of stuff, or kite shops often have random sizes of small diameter rod and tubePosted 4 years ago
