Fender Tyres
« on: November 13, 2012, 16:56:07 »
Hi,
Does anyone know who stocks a good selection of fender type rubber tyres that could be used on a Schoalbuster type / Damen workboat/small tug.

The dia would be about 1.5 inches O.D or about 40mm. Not too fussy but they need to be black and of general marine look. ( No mag wheels or slicks!!)

Would prefer a UK supplier but anywhere would be fine.

Need about a dozen.

Any suggestions out there??

I have used some 1/24 truck tyres, from Italeri, on my modern tug. They are 40mm diameter. I don't have any spare, unfortunately, but the sizing is right.

Tugboyben.

I just checked my drawing again and they are 38mm O.D.

They look perfect but the model is only a springer tug with the Shipco ( NZ) superstructure and 43 might be a little too big. They look at part though but they are better than anything i have seen so far and 5mm might not matter.

I will have a look through the site as they might have something slightly smaller.

Thank you very much.

VANYA.

A great range of fitting at Hobby-Lobby Modelbau, thanks .

Now I'm after a 100mm long Zodiac or speedboat inc outboard. That is a test. >:D
