1:16 scale cargo/scramble nets, oil drums, types etc. Any sources?
« on: September 26, 2007, 04:02:32 PM »

Hello.

I'm just wondering where you chaps source your "bits" from for boat builds.

I.e I need things like Cargo nets, oil drums, tyres etc, all in 1:16 scale.

Don't really have a clue where I'd go to get some of these things.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

SHG do a variety of tyres, nets - look at fruit nets etc.  Oil drums at 1/16 I made my own.

There are very few figures @ 1:16 in plastic kits and what they are are mainly ww2 German.
There are however dolls house figures at that scale which you might be able to adapt .Probably best to do a Google search. O0

Steve,

SHG Model Supplies, 01785840308, www.shgmodels.com    email info@shgmodels.com

they do tyres 12.5 20,25,35,50mm  which is 20cm(8"approx) to 80cm(31"approx) at 1/16 scale

Thinking on I got some net from Model Slipway for my fishing boat - worth a try.

The Oil drum I turned (first attempt) on a electric drill attachment I acquired. (Turns your drill into a basic lathe)

It doesn't stand too close a scrutiny on the camera but looks ok on my fishing boat  O0

Cheers

Doug

RE scramble nets.

Go to the sports store. and look at some of the sports nets. E.G. Badminton net, table tennis. I think the Basketball hoop net will be too large.
You could also try to make your own. http://www.modelboatmayhem.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=9795.0
this thread might help.
