Hi everyone,

I have a Hobby Engine " Southampton Tug " and need to replace one or two tyres from around the hull. Does anyone know where I can get these from.

Many thanks

Chris.

Hi Neil,

They are 30mm, if you are sure you dont want them, I would gladly accept them.

Thank you,

Chris

Hi Chris

If Neils tyres are no good, Cornwall Model Boats do tyres.

Thanks DickyD Smile I am sure they will be great, but I will keep the site link, as they fall off from time to time, the horrible nylon line which was supplied with them keeps coming undone, wont knot properly, tried melting the knot or putting glue on it but nothing appears to work for long. Does anyone know of any very thin cord etc suitable which would work ?

Reference tying on the tyres, I went to a Haberdashery shop near me today and found some black S P Thread - 100% linen - very strong as it is used for saddlery, canvas, and upholstery repair. It has worked a treat and was only 79p for ten metres. Looks ideal for rigging etc too.
