The Ho-229 Display Stand
After I finished my Z-M Ho-229, I realized there was something missing. I thought that the pieces that didn't go on the final model needed to be displayed separtely. So, I built this little stand to hold the top of the wing, body, nose, and engine parts. I used Evergreen "I"-beam, round and flat styrene stock. The top was made from basswood pieces cut to various lengths. It only took a couple of days to build. The wood was stained with a mixture of oils I had sitting around, and the bottom of the stand was painted with Mission Models acrylics.I added some light rust stains for interest.
