HI,if you look at this image and the circle I've made around the end of the pressure hoses ends



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Is there someone who makes the ends in 1/35, not the metal 90 elbow but rather the (I'm not English born so I'm not certain of the word) sleeve that's on the hose.

Or

I'll have to scratchbuild it and I'm open to suggestion on how-to make them.

Any help/suggestion will be deeply appreciated and maybe one day I'll be able to reciprocate.

Marc a.k.a ubisuck

[EDIT]

ps: I found the photo on Google. I'd like to deeply thank the person who did it and tell him that I actually makes no money while using his picture.

TD23047 TD23048 and TD23049 look like what you may need.



A/N fittings is one term to search.

http://www.precisionscaleco.com/ might be another place to try for some HO or other scale pipe fittings.

Perfect! Thank You so Much. Exactly. Question (maybe dumb one): What does A/N means?

Thank you again.

AN is actually derived from Army/Navy when the threads/fittings were developed around WWII. they decided to have a universal fitting for both branches.

Hydraulic fittings are pretty darn close to them.

Thank's again. Looking at the first link, so far, I found pretty much all that I need. Now I still haven't found the prices.

ps: And they have amazing bikes.

I'll go surf through the 2nd link.

When you know the right names of objects to search, it's incredible to see the results you get.
