Handrailing
« on: February 19, 2010, 06:28:58 »
OK guys, I'm looking for 1:48 scale three rail handrailing. Harbor Models doesn't have it in 1:48 scale. I'm going to need a lot for I have two 35" models with three decks to build. Any idea where to find it. Hopefully in the States.

"A Model World" in the UK is worth a try - ordered a bunch of Robbe ones - slightly larger - had them here in two weeks by post in a bubble wrap envelope. Give him the height, etc - see what he has.

I can only help with two sources in Germany:

Mobellbau Kaufhaus: http://shop.modellbau-kaufhaus.de/modules.php?warp=categories&group=382 Go to "Relingstuetzen 1:50 mit zwei Durchzügen" to find a picture. The height is 18 mm, the pin 4 mm. The width is 2.0 mm with the material (brass?) 0.3 mm thick. One package with ten stanchions costs 3.15 Euro

Saemann Aetztechnik: http://www.saemann-aetztechnik.de/aetzteile/index.html  Go to Art.-Nr. 3020. They are looking the same as Modellbau Kaufhaus' but are 22 mm heigh plus pin (3.5 mm). Width is 1.4mm. The top rail is 0.8 mm dia., the remaining rails are 0.4 mm. The material is 0.4 m nickel silver. One package contains 60 straight pieces and 14 with an additional strut at approx. 60° in the lower half. One package costs 10.10 Euro.
