    MG Geara Doga custom pipes?

    Does anybody have the dimensions/quantity needed of custom pipes for the MG Geara Doga and where I can get them? Thanks!

    Id also like to know. The way they slot on to the kit makes them harder to make than just turning some parts on the lathe so if anyone makes some hard plastic parts for areas like the chest and stuff that does not need articulation id like to know.

    Unfortunately I don't believe anyone makes replacement pipes that are exact copies of the original. You could use the metal tubes for a zaku. Id have to measure my geara doga, but i believe 5 and 3 mm tubes would work. You could also use metal springs or metal mesh tubes. I was going to try and make some custom tubes by coiling solder or solid core wire.

    I was considering doi g that to but the piping on the geara doga is so small and has a slot and tab attachment instead of connecting at the ends. Id be happy if they made them hard plasitc to take paint esier.

    You could always recast them in in resin. That's my plan B it i don't like the way the hand made one's turn out.

    Not a bad plan b. I wonder if i could turn some brass down to the larger diameter cut grove and bend it. It does not look like many of those are sharp curves. Would be worth tue effort and we have scrap brass barstock.

    That's what I was thinking, the springs with the smallest pipe sections available. I'll probably try the 3mm...
