Assuming that the wagon has a standard 10' wheelbase, you could scale the diameter from the picture. However looking at them and assuming 10' wheelbase that would make the drums a scale 5' in diameter which is 20mm and the width you could make to be a snug fit in between the vertical sides of the inside faces of the wagon. At a guess around 25-29mm.

OK let me try and explain this again all I have is just the flatbed wagon it is missing it's original reels..... Hornby Dublo 3 rail model... I need to make some cable reels like shown in the picture. This one shown is not mine it's just an example of one that I am trying to restore it to look like.
Surely someone on here must have this model with the reels attached to it..... All I need if possible is for someone to measure the outside diameter of the wooden reel plus the width of it as well.
