How to make scale tubing for fuel lines or coolant hoses

Tip: Looking for scale tubing for fuel lines or coolant hoses? Look for coated paper clips at your local office supply store. Straighten the paper clip as much as possible, and carefully slice and remove pieces of the clear coating.  

If you’re lucky, you might be able to get the coating off in one long piece, but it’s rare that will happen (at least for me). After it’s off, you can use it for any number of things under your scale model’s hood.

Ken: Thanks for the tip, George. Short pieces of paper clip tubing can also be used for spark plug and distributor boots in the larger scales.
