Braided line /fittings & plug wires 1/16
Posted by MonteSS05 on Saturday, May 30, 2015 10:43 AM

Can anybody give me an idea on how to figure out the size of braided line to use for a 1/16 Revell Hawaiian Funnycar engine build? Fuel and oil lines would surely be different dia's. Also any info on ignition wire size in this scale would be helpful. Thanks,Mike

Actually that would be for a 3" hose.  2" would take .083-2.1167  Sorry, I was looking at 1/24 scale.  He was right!

The first thing to do is to find out the actual diameter of the various hoses and cables you wan tto replicate. This may take a bit of googling or other research, but write down the sizes as you find them for future reference.

Next, simply divide the actual size by 16. For instance, lets say ignition cable is 9 mm diameter. 9 divided by 16 = 0.56 mm. If you prefer imperial measure, use an online conversion site to convert mm to inches. 0.56 mm = .022". My favorite measurement conversion site is http://www.onlineconversion.com/
