Work stand

Postby jonst95 » Sat Jul 12, 2014 11:25 am

My lovely and supportive wife surprised me with this stand yesterday. I saw a similar stand that someone had made on another site and commented how nice it would be to have something like it. She made it out of old wire coat hangers and two wooden rods that are covered in a soft cloth. It's a perfect size for 1/48 scale planes, which make up 95% of what I build.

Hi mate,

That's neat! Looks like a useful piece of kit. Now she needs to patent and start selling them :lol:

Oh yeah, can we please have a couple of pics of your F-4G? That looks very nice 8-)

How are the crossbars held together?

There's someone in my head but it's not me
