c.1:48 – 4″ Pipe Fittings

Current stock is : Out of stock

90° and 45° elbows, couplings and Tees; gate valves. These all have a small stud to fit the ID of a piece of Evergreen #223 tubing. This tubing measures 0.093 in./2,4 mm OD and 0.039 in./0,99 mm ID. This OD is very close to a nominal pipe (4-1/2 in.) in O scale.

Note: Evergreen tubing is nominal in size. Don’t force the fittings .. ream the tubing with a drill bit if necessary (#61, 1.0 mm drill)
Note 2: I added a handwheel for each of the gate valves. This is so small it may break on you – but I added them as an ‘extra’. The hole both in the handwheel and the gate valve is .6 mm/.024 in. dia – I have found small straight pins that are .018″ dia work well for the valve shafting.
Note 3: I called these 1:48 .. honestly you can use them in other scales
