where can i get 1/25 "t fittings" with hollow ends?  i found some that are a solid piece(metal) but didnt think i could glue the fuel line to them successfully.  and/or what have yall used for t fittings for fuel/brake line connections?

I used a piece of plastruct hexagonal rod and drilled it through then attached a tiny hexagonal bead to a flat side for the third opening. The rod is under 1/8th inch and the bead is the 0/15 size.

Pro Tech model parts. Not hollow ends but the ends can be easily drilled with a pin vise.

When drilling tiny holes I start by using a new #11 blade to make a little divot where I want the hole because the bits tend to walk around a bit without something to guide them.

If you don't mind using PE, Aber has this set. All of the joints, nipples and valves are hollow:

Instructions

They look really good when assembled.

Do they come with instructions? I don't have a clue how to use that

Also, color the area being drilled with a black sharpie. You’ll be able to see if you are centered.
