    I don't know if this is the right forum (there's no Real Thing - UK) but here goes.

    What size are British chimney pots? I build a lot of cardboard kits and I replace the paper rollups they supply with plastic tube, but I don't know if I have them right.
    I expect there's some sort of range - height, diameter, thickness.
    Are there also fancy shapes?

    Here's a change for Samus & Kettlestack to climb up on their rooves.:rolleyes: :D

    Thanks;

    60103,

    British chimney pots come in such a variety of sizes shapes and colours as to boggle the mind.
    Simple domestic pots are typically 12" internal diameter up to 18".
    Height ranges from 18" to 24".
    Fancy (Edwardian and Victorian) can be almost any colour and height, also glazed or straightforward pottery.
    Try http://www.chimneypot.net/fancy/index.html to get an idea of what I'm talking about.
    You might also want to try "ask jeeves" search engine to find links to "chimneypots".
    I hope this helps.
    Good hunting.

    Errol
