    Hi
    Does any one have a design for making a bellows arrangement not for a camera but for a model trains coach connection.
    Ideally an inverted "U" design of 40mm wide & about 70mm high. The pleats I think should be about 5mm.
    I have heard of them out there but have never seen one, but now would like to make a couple ok 10 or so.
    TIA
    Tony

    This nifty litttle toy shows you how to design a bellows. I'm sure it wouldn't be too difficult to adapt the design to a model rr passenger car bellows.
