Hi bigford,

If you run into a dead end maybe you can make them out of K&S brass angles for the corners and brass plate for the four sides. Sounds like your making ducting or  something. I have to build some in a smaller scale to duct air in and out of the engine room of the towboat I'm building. I have some nice 25mm square fans to circulate air but need the duct work for them.

There are several materials vendors at the Cabin Fever show in January that have brass shapes. I can keep an eye out for you if you have not found anything by then.

Very cool Peterbuilt "boat" there bigford.  ;)

If you could live with ABS plastic, Plastruct has 1.25 square tubing item no. ST-40 that is 14" long or ST-40L that is 30" long. Their other smaller square tubes telescope inside. The only hindrance might be the thicker wall thickness.
