Scale Structures Ltd Flue Rack kit HO Scale

Hi there

I'm about to start construction on this kit and was wondering what size tube should I use to represent boiler flue's.

I was thinking 1/16" for HO scale but would appreciate any advice.

cheers

Not familiar with this kit. 1/16 would be good for a residence, but probably too small for an industry. It would also depend on the boiler size. 1/16 is aprox. 6" in HO. I would think 3/32 - 1/125 for an industry. You could Google some similar structures & get some ideas..." good luck" jerry

I'm not familiar with the kit but assuming they are 6-12" in diameter (from internet pics), 1/16", 3/32", and 1/8" all would be appropriate. Don't the instructions give advice?

Hi runner

Thanks for you reply.

Just re-reading my original question I may have worded it better.
There are no suggestion for what flue size to use in the kit not are they included.

There are photos of the completed kit included which show flues on the racks.

I figured they would be approx what you suggested.

Really appreciate your reply and suggested sizes

Cheers
