Default Stands for 1/100 models...gauging interest

Hello all,

Been reading the forums for a little bit and just recently started posting. I had a 1/100 727 model in need of a stand, and did not want to go through the trouble of trying to find one on eBay or from PacMin, so naturally I went through even more trouble and made one myself, copying the design of the PacMin stand that came with a YC-14 model of mine.

The short stand is 4 inches wide and 6 inches long; the longer stand is 7 inches long. The arm is made of anodized aluminum and the wood is walnut (twice the price of mahogany at the local lumber yard). I built a total of 3 so far, and finished 2 of them with polyurethane to give it a beautiful and resilient shine.

My question is this - are there others who would be interested in purchasing or trading for stands like this? MSR777's comment in the Space Models Challenger thread got me thinking about that! I have some larger pieces of other woods with which I will explore making a 767- and/or 747-sized stand. Is there any interest in the medium or large sized stands?

Looking forward to any input!

Hello would be interested in a stand for my pacmin 747-400 scale 1/100. What is the price of one and what are the costs for shipping to the Netherlands?

Awaiting reply...Sergiooo

I've actually been wanting stands to wall-mount my PacMin models. PacMin doesn't offer them (dumb really), and with space being a premium, having a wall mount is more of interest to me.

Hi ooh777,

I could do $65 shipped to the Netherlands - I sold one of my smaller stands for $47.50 shipped overseas. I do actually have an extra "official" PacMin large-size stand I could let go for the same price, although it is not in the best of shape (some pitting on the wood and appears to have been in the sun a bit). Have a look at the two, pictures attached to this message.

This is the first large-sized stand I built, and to be honest, I'm not sure if the aluminum bar I used is thick enough...will test it out on a 744 of mine on Wednesday after returning from a trip. The wood is a single piece of black walnut which comes out darker than the wood on the PacMin stand.

As for wall stands, I'd be worried about trying to build one of those, as to get the plane far enough from the wall, it would have a rather large moment arm, and I simply wouldn't trust screws with anchors into drywall (US house construction) with a larger 1/100 scale model.

Regarding cast aluminum stands, I most definitely do not have the equipment to make those, although I am aware of a person in Oregon, I believe, who makes recast DFM-style stands...I bought one for my 1/50 UA DC-8 and it was great. I think some of the collectors from the Vancouver, BC area would know of that person's contact info.

I have attached some pictures of stands that I have been making for myself. I can do them for $35.00 US plus shipping. Height is usually 5.5 to 6 inches. No two are identical as they are hand made. Load bearing is good as per the 1/100 metal casting 747 model.

I have also made some tri pod models and could sell for $30.00 plus shipping.

Hello Sergio, one wooden base stand $15.00 US to Netherlands. I can fit two in the same box and then it would be $18.00 US for the two.

Hi Sergio,

If you need an actual PacMin model stand, you can contact PacMin and they would be happy to sell you them.

https://www.pacmin.com/

Have purchased several from them directly in the past.



Regards, Robert
