Default HS0004 Hobbymaster 1/72 Jet Aircraft Display stand

As announced on HMC site, HM is introducing new 1/72 Jet Aircraft Display stand:







I like the look of the stand. Also, with its wide base it looks stable. Plus it allows to display models with centerline loadout.

With some bending it probably will be also possible to some extent bank / pitch the model on the stand.


However on the photo the rod end caps (plugs, adapters) stick out too far from the nozzles which looks somehow unfinished to me, well, maybe even ugly. Like nozzles wearing earplugs. Not a clean solution, I´d rather prefer plugs to be shorter, sinked in the nozzles (HM Phantoms have quite deep nozzles) and "cup-like" - hollow from outside.

And last note: the base looks quite large and will probably eat more space in the cabinet than other 1/72 stands - wouldn´t be surprised it turns to be the biggest 1/72 stand in the industry in terms of the base size. So we will see if with this stand those having crowded cabinets will be able to display as many models as with Witty stand:

Great solution for a legacy of mounting problems.....

Perhaps inspired by wire and this (pictured)....

Let's see what pricing looks like.....I'm tempted.

You can probably DIY by getting solid rubber or neoprene lab stoppers (pictured).....they come in different colors or you can paint to blend with exhaust nozzels...... some stoppers can come already with a single hole.

All you need is wood for base (finished to your liking), solid wire or wire rod ....gauge of your choice, and the best fitting stopper.

Tools

Drill
Drill bits
Glue
Wire bending pliers
Cutting tool (small saw, cutting wheel, etc) for trimming length of stopper if needed

I think it's possible to display a plane directly on the base, just under the plane in flight position...
The pic illustrating the ladia's post come from my cabinet... and witty's stands are great, but they took some space on the ground, so, HM new stuff could be a good alternative...
Let's see
