    Hi Pete, every day is a skool day for me too, the photo's were taken through the fence at Fort William by a customer of mine, I liked the simplicity of the process and it solves a problem for modellers in off loading rail fuel tanks as their is very little in the way of pipework out there. Please watch out for more overhead pipe support gantry's & piperack supports in the future similar to the photo, these will be available in ready made and kit form . (Q3 2022) I also sell the 90 degree elbows to suit 5, 7 & 9mm diameter metal or plastic pipes. cheers, John

    Mmmmm ..... how far do you currently go with the pipe fittings in these sizes.

    Do you offer flanges versions ?

    Some straight through pipe joints woul be good as well along with T pieces and individual valve fittings. If the variety was there then it would allow the modeler to create their own bespoke system. Straight lengths of pipe with flush ends would be able to be married into the bore of the pipe cuttings. Or .... possibly draws could be used instead of pipe sections. It may suit you to only hold the fittings in the range. .... if there was a big enough variety within the dange, I'd be interested as they have many uses.

    There maybe a bonus in as much as some similar pipe sizes could be used over different scales and markets, ie O Gauge and military modeli g to name one.

    I dont know how involved it would be to make suitable master moulds for each fitting.

    Cheers for now

    Toto

    PS ..... could you post up some photos of the currently available fitting range.
