Some time ago I build a Septic Service Pump Truck in 1/25th scale. I never added any hose line because I couldn't find any corrugated hose. I still can't find any hose but moreover the, hose connectors, do they exist in 1/25th scale. I think they're similar to fire hose connections. Does anyone make these, and where to get them???

i made corrugated hose take a metal close hangar or smaller rod and wrap solder around it.i used the smallest solder i could find to make a coil the length you need leave it on the rod then take teflon plumbing tape and wrap it tightly onto your coil of solder .i left mine white i dont think paint will stick to it though just slide it off the rod and you have your septic truck hose.hope this helps

I guess I'll have to use this suggestion in place of what I want. I didn't think of such a simple solution Thanks.

How about using black plastic electrician's tape. You also could use copper wire wrapped around the coat hanger and closest size of shrink tubing,that way there would be no seams from applying tape.

I have yet to try it, but I was thinking of heat shrink tubing.  There are several colors available or you could paint it.

Yes I did that once and wasn't happy with my results. I could try again and try to get it right. But what about the hose connectors anybody know about those??
