    So far, I have only come across two model stands for aircraft, both being offered by FG. I'm not crazy about the design of either as they do not seem to support the models well. Does anyone know the whereabouts of any other available stand designs? Or if you happen to have a favorite rig for displaying planes, I would like to hear about it too. Thanks.

    OK.......... here is a stand that I worked on.

    It's a little like the old plastic ones that used to come in the kits when I was a kid.

    It's still a work in progress but so far it works for me.

    If the plane doesn't have a single jet pipe to put the plane on the support, you can cut it off flat at the top glue a small rectangle on the end and affix the model with straight pins from the bottom.

    If you have questions let me know and I'll try and post a picture of what I mean.
