Default Ishimasa Sky Lark EH-1

Howdy, Cleaning out a storage shed and pulled out one of these. Here's a link to another site with info:

http://www.vrhc.co.uk/RC%20Helicopte...Lark%20EH1.htm



I was thinking of restoring mine, but I need some material to make the tail rotor drive "belt". I remember it was made of some kind of round plastic/rubber/nylon type material that could be melted together to repair or set the proper length/tension. Anybody know what kind of material I could use for that belt?

Thanks,
Sam

No problem, I would be interested in a video of this jewel after restoration.
Looks like a watchmaker designed and built the original.
