Corrugated Radiator Hose
Posted by JPolli1 on Sunday, May 26, 2019 8:44 AM

Might anyone know if any after market dealers sell 1:25 scale corrugated radiator hose (with the ridges)?  I know many deallers sell smooth radiator/coolent hose.  Looking for the ridges however.

I make them from used guitar wire with a short section of styrene rod on each end for the clamp. They can be made as long or short as needed, and look pretty convincing after paint.

Good looking hoses, Spencer. They really look the bit.

Your radiator hoses look terrific!  Can you please expound on how you make them with guitar wire?
