Default Need pipe for Aviation Design 1/9 scale Rafale

I am looking for a bifurcated pipe for an Aviation Design 1/9 scale Rafale. I thought I might ask here first, if anyone had one laying around collecting dust in the corner somewhere.
The pipe would be 45 to 47 cm long. The bifurcation is 17.5 cm outside to outside, 4 cm between the pipes. The pipes are 6.5 cm diameter.
I am sure I can have one made, just want to see if something might be out there.

Hi John, did you find a pipe for your Rafale? What turbine are you planning to use? I have a Merlin 100 in mine and hope to get my first flight on it this Friday. Could you please tell me where the CG is. Thanks in advance. Mark

I intend using a new K-70 G2, which arrived Friday. The plane is complete, but without turbine, pipe and tank and is at 9.6#, although it still needs painting. I have had to remake a few parts as they did not age well in my attic. I was unable to acquire linear output servos for the elevens so have had to use a thin wing servo, cut into the wing further, and make new shrouds that cover the cut out. I have also made a way to easily make the wings removable for transport.
I have asked Tam if he could make a pipe. He said he is waiting on material.
The CG as listed on the print is 100mm aft of the leading edge of the wing at the root.
Good luck with your maiden. Mine will come obviously after I get a pipe.
