Evergreen do a range of polystyrene tubing Jim, fairly easy to get from model suppliers. Can be heated and streched thinner if needed.
Cheers, Fred

Thanks Guys, what I was looking for was a brass tubing of about 2.5mm inner bore and a hard plastic tube that would take that brass tubing inside it....the thickness of the plastic does not matter in fact the thicker and more rigid the better. I wanted to make my own electric individual plugs that could then be used with multi-blocks for easy and often connect/disconnects.

I get my brass tubing from B&Q (DIY store) they start at 1.5mm inner bore and go up to something like 6mm and it comes in 1metre lengths, the last lengths I got were 1.5mm bore and cost 2.65 each. They also do various plastics and a great range of firbeglass tubing of different bores.

Hope this of some help although I don't think you will have a B&Q in Spain  :(

Regards, Dan.

Jim,

Have a look at this place.

http://www.scalamodels.com/tienda/index.php?main_page=index&zenid=cb1b6a8a9f02944700716f1f07b6c738

They are based in Malaga. Spanish web sites tend to be rather poor but this seems pretty good with plenty of stock..

This is another good company from the north of Spain. I have used them many times and they are very good and have quick delivery times, by Spanish standards.
