Default Air cylinders-long stroke...where?

Building an SU 27 Flanker from Bertella plans..much modified. I need 2 long stroke, skinny, air cylinder for the air brake and nose wheel. I see some adds for the high $ jet kits that show these cylinders, but no clue who might make them. I'm thinking about a 4" stroke.

You might try Clippard. They have 5/16" bore stainless steel cylinders with 4" stroke that use #10-32 fittings. Part number is USR-05-4-V. Price is $23.51. Here's a link to their web site [link=http://www.clippard.com/cylinders/]http://www.clippard.com/cylinders/[/link]

Thanks for the tip! That's getting pretty close. I was hoping to find something a little more 'sleek', but if not, that would work. Bill
