    Does anybody have a file or a website for a simple aircraft stand? I'm looking for one like used to be included with old 1/72 scale kits, you know, "V" shaped base with a swept pillar to attach the plane to.

    Thanks!

    Would'nt a coat hanger setup be better? It would'nt be so prominent.

    A little bending and a little soldering and voila!

    Here's one I whipped up for Bill Jone's Arrow model. I created it manually in an OpenOffice Spreadsheet that you can download here and modify to suit your needs. A PDF of the stand pictured below is here. I've since created this stand in Meta and Pepakura but haven't finished test building and everything. If you're interested let me know.
