I've always found cardboard tubes inside rolls of carpet are VERY strong - but I guess they're too big.

Alternatively, use the tube from a miniature dolls house carpet. These can be found mostly in 1/12 scale at http://www.hobby.uk.com but I'm sure you'll find 1/6 scale somewhere which should doimages/smiles//icon_smile.gif

Edit. Couldn't you make a replica cardboard tube and fool everyone? Like the guy who painted a pebble to look like a conker.
