Default Train horns???

i know it's probably a complete shot in the dark but I'm looking for a place to find a decent set of horns in a scale close to the tamiya semis that are 1:14 if you guys can help I'd great appreciate it, thanks in advance.

Hi Chris these horns are tiny for truck scale they are 1/20 or so . I've been looking for my 1/13.7 scale trains and end up making them myself . Mike

G scale comes out to 1:22.5 is there anything closer to 1:14 even if it ends up being a little big?

Thanks for the link Bo Wallen unfortunately I can't ask the question being as I'm not a member of the forum and they're not accepting new members.

When you are dealing with Inter-Species parts like this don't worry about what the scale of the part is.

I have parts that are for 1/8 cars that are right on scale for these trucks.

I'd look for either a G scale horn or an S scale horn. Get one on you might be surprised.

Like I said I have parts from 1/8 scale cars like windshield wipers and door handles that fit these trucks perfectly. A 1:1 car is much smaller than a 1:1 truck therefore its parts are smaller. If you use a larger scale part then the scale comes out right. Trains are much bigger than trucks, same thing works in reverse.
