I'm trying to find the tubing that is used in the body and sides of the head of the alien. Does anyone know what they are called and what types of stores carry them. Im assuming their plastic and hollow and quite flexible. Any help? I've been to several hardware stores only to find thick metal flexible tubing but dont bellieve that is what it is. Thanks in advance.

I think the name your looking for is convoluted tubing. I've always called it split loom but they also call it split seam. Mainly due to it having one slit in it to go over wiring. They make them in lots of sizes and you should be able to find them in electonic and automotive sections.

The metal version you found is flexable conduit used for power wiring.

Hope this helps.

im an electrician and i use that everyday, its called corrugated conduit (coro for short). It comes in sizes ranging from 16mm diameter to 50mm+, if you go into any electrical wholesalers they will sell that.

Oddly I wasn't expecting to find this information and yet its been the most helpful thread I've read thus far today. *L* Learn something new every day. This should help me finish up some of my trophy skull work though. Awesome thoughts!

Accually it is more of an irrigation/drainage type of tubing in that size. Look at your home improvement stores in the Sprinkler System section or in the Rain Gutter sections.
