My family and I drink a powdered drink called Crystal Light made by Kraft foods. The small containers come in a larger cylindrical container about 1.5" in diameter and 8 inches long. This strikes me as a real kitbashing opportunity, but I am not sure what to use it for. I guess you could use a piece of PVC, but then you would have to go buy 12 feet or so to get a few inches. I am in N scale, but this size could be used for all sorts of stuff in other scales. I am still thinking about this; just trying to be helpful.
