Hi guys, like the title says, I am in urgent need of some solid plastic/acrylic rod in 7mm diameter about 1m in length or any offcuts greater than 150mm in length.



These are needed to complete a 4-1 exhaust system I am scratch building for a TAMIYA 1/6th scale HONDA CB750-F kit I am in the process of constructing.



Any help would be greatly appreciated guys, preferably in the UK if at all possible.





Cheers.

Quickest UK option would be to find a retailer that would have it in stock. Evergreen's 9/32 round is pretty close to 7mm

Cheers for your reply, but it has to be solid not tube.


Thanks.

Solid in that size may be tougher to find, but if anyone knows where to find it, look up Scratchbuilt, I bet he can set you up with a UK source.

Did you consider using brass or aluminum round stock?

have you looked in your local knitting shop, knitting needles come in all sorts of sizes.
