Re: Pipe loads on the cheap

I have found black straws here in Sweden. The straight part is about 45
scale feet. Takes away all the problems with painting. You just have to
airbrush them with a dull coat. I would be surprised if you couldn’t find
them in US as well. Try to find them in shops which sell Halloween party

Etching is a very good idea. I made a pipe load with plastic straws
and painted the load with Floquil (old formula) with no etching.
Eventually the paint started flaking off even though the load wasn't
being handled.
