Looking For DFM or Reproduction Stand
 
1 Attachment(s)
I have acquired a 1/50th scale DFM DC-9 which is missing the original stand. I do have the round aluminum swivel mount attached to the model which then threads into the top of the missing stand.

I am exploring building my own stand using a vintage 7 inch long by 5 inch wide boomerang mic stand and having a local company machine the vertical post to fit the swivel attachment. I'm pricing that option out this week locally.

I would like to see whats out there before I commit to anything. I know original DFM stands are almost impossible to find so I was hoping a reproduction one would be my best option if I went that route.

If you have any information or any idea's please send me a PM me here or contact me through my website. Home Page | Skythings.ca.

Thank you,
Noel

I would contact Gary Field as he makes reproduction stands.

Gary has made a few model stands for me in the past.

You'll be very happy with his workmanship.

Is Gary going to paint it in black Krinkle finish like the originals?

We did not have that discussion. I will inquire with him. That would be my preference if that option is available. Thank you for the idea.
