Smoke units and pipes

Hi.

So as I start to turn my attention to my crusaders working I have come to realise. A tarr takes up to much space. So a standard hl unit has been modified. Problem is all I have is tarr piping which is to small to fit the hl units elbows.

Can anyone tell me the internal diameter of the silicone pipe I need to accomplish my goal. It looks about 6mm but I can’t confirm

I cannot help with the Inside diameter of the pipes but I have found that plastic drinking straws are the right size and the bendable ones can be usefully steered around corners.

The outside diameter of the clear flexible tube is 6mm, the inside diameter is 4mm for Heng Long.
That's what its always been, unless they've changed it for the latest model.

You can apply with silicon tube for Aquarium instead of heng long smoke pipe and IV tube for Tarr silicone pipe. :D
And both are perfect combine.
