I see a lot of people on here use aluminum tubing for straight pipes, but where do you get it from? I tried the local hobby lobby Micheal's and Hobby town, they had no idea on where to get some from. Can I get it from like a Lowes or Depot? And if so what dept is it in, Thanks.

The aluminum tube that I used I got from my local hobb shop. It's made by K&S Precision Metals specifically for model building. Here's their Website: http://ksmetals.com/ You "might" be able to find something useable at Home Depot or Lowe's, but I seriously doub't it.

Ask at you local Hobby Shop (Not the Chains) if they carry Walther's Model Railroading products.
If so, They Can get the tubing. Ask for a Copy of one of the Current Walther's Catalog.
I use to get the HO scael one all the time. It includes Plastruct, Evergreen, K&S, and MANY
other Scratchbuilding & Detailing parts & supplies.
The "Large O, #1, G) Scale" catalog will even include 1/24 scale items.
