    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.:)

    1.5" in diameter - hmm - ticketa-ticketa - that's 20ft in N scale, about 1/2 that in HO, yadda, yadda. Kinda big for culverts or flat car loads. Probably a tank of some kind?

    Maybe oversized load for HO. Or regular load? It is not very heavy at all.

    I Know!! An oversized Kraft Foods Crystal Light container for advertising purposes, kinda like the giant beer cans you see at NASCAR races.

    Ho scale ideas...

    A section of it could be the body of a roof top water tower...

    10' diameter (HO) is not bad for culverts or drains...

    Propane cylinder at modern gas stations...

    Rocket booster...!

    If the individual containers are still the foil covered plastic ones, they make great paint mixing cups!
