Default Wing tubes

Building a Wright Curtiss T-32 Condor, I need wing tubes, about 3/4 inch OD for the receiver tubes. Where do I find them???? I've tried most of the hobby sites and they have replacement tubes with no spec's. There has to be a site that has them. Help!

Try " Hobby Lobby " or if the tube isn't a part of the structure make your own by rolling up a sheet of paper . ENJOY RED

It seems most of the hobby sites have gotten away from helping the hobbyists to helping themselves make money and only provide enough information for spare parts for specific items they sell or sold in the past. Good luck finding a part for something you are building from scratch or a kit manufacturer they don't supply. Horizon Hobby is the worst on this. They, and all their vendors, provide very little technical information, just that this part goes with this airplane, etc.

Sorry, didn't mean to hijack your thread. Just ranting.

I bought here a few years ago,, some guys have complained them having slow response time,,, but it would be worth giving them a call

I've also bought from vendors on Amazon,

good luck

It's the same thing I thought while browsing their sites. I guess building is a lost art. I like building 'different' planes that everyone asks 'What is that?' When US old timers are gone, it will be dead. I remember when you wanted a kit, you had to fill out an order form, get a money order and mail it. Wait 4 to 6 weeks for it to arrive. Have your Dad drive 40 miles to the hobby store to get bits and pieces. Rant away....
