I have been asked if the 1/72 DFM stand is supplied with a Douglas logo.
ANSWER: The stand is supplied as per the photo, with no logo.

I have been asked if the 1/72 DFM stand will match up with a ball and socket
ANSWER: I cannot confirm it will match up with the ball and socket you have. It may need to be rethreaded ... I do not know.

Hope this addresses some questions I have been asked. Cheers, Henry

Hi Henry,

Hope all is well.

Thanks for sharing these items with the board. I'm sure that there's a model collector or two who will be interested in one or two of these for sure.



Always wanted to ask you if personally manufacture these stands and the 1/50 scale Douglas DC-8 recast models yourself?

Or is there a metal foundry that you use, who manufactures these for you?

As have a friend, who's got a metal model, who needs some metal restoration work done.

Thanks so much for your time as always.

Regards, Robert

Hi Robert,

I know some of us are experts in metal works, but I am not a foundry or metal man. I use commercial foundries to do this work for me.

For all this work there are minimum quantities .. hence I had to do 20 DC-8s. And for the stands it is a min quantity of 3.

The foundry does not do restoration work. They only do castings. You give them a part or pattern, and they pour metal.

Your friend would need to find a local metal expert. My foundry does big commercial jobs, and they only fit my work in when they can .. when it is slow for a bit.

So it took just about 1 year for me to get the 6 stands done shown in the photo. Which I picked up a few days ago. This work cannot be done in a rush. Not from my foundry anyhow.

If only these stands were as easy to come across as a pacmin stand...

I am always looking for Pacmin stands. Do you have spare Pacmin stands for sale?

Hi,

Does anyone know of recast DFM display stands in 1/50 scale, available for purchase?
I would appreciate being pointed in the right direction.

Thanks, Matt

I no longer have ability to cast these stands as the final metal foundry in Western Canada has ceased operations.

That said you can find Verkuyl recast stands and other stands available on this page:

Thank you, Henry, for the info and link!

Did you make the DFM stand recasts for Gary Field, too, or did he make his own stands? Could you possibly get me in touch with him, then? Would very much appreciate your help.

Thanks, Matt

We both used local foundries but both of our foundries have shut down so neither of us can do metal casting work any more.
