Manfred, you do some amazing work. By the way, do you have any problems finding the correct size tubing and rod stock needed for the model, or do you go with the closest size available?

Regards, Colin

Hello Colin

I go with the closest size available from evergreen like sheet 0.4-2.0mm, H-column, tubing, rod etc. I think it is nearly impossible to find the 100% correct size of tubing, rod etc. for make a model.

Regards, Manfred

Here a first pic from a new TBM-model-project : A model in scale 1:100 from the Katzenberg-TBM. It is a tunnel-project for the german railway near Freiburg.
