  • Tom,


    Been having a search and really struggling find anywhere that goes below 0.75 inch! This place doesn't have it but boy do they have a lot of stuff in, maybe worth an email?


    Also, have you tried your local model shop(s) as they might stock the smaller stuff?

    Must be lost in translation :)  Unfotunately Google is proving pretty insistent that I buy local (it keeps reverting me to UK companies!) but have a look at this place, if they don't have it maybe they can get it?



    I'll keep searching....
