Ever try to work on the bottom of your model, plane flipping back and forth on the tail? Or break off an important piece? Well I have done that, and have muttered a few curses. Recently while looking at pics online, at my one of my favorite sites, AeroScale, I saw pics being displayed of the bottom of the aircraft, on what I would say resembles an overhead crane frame. I thought, now something like that would be great to support a model while working on it. So I open my drawer with my extra stryene to see what I could do.
Well after a little cutting and gluing....this is what I came up with
Using some plastic i-beams and strip pieces I constructed this handy tool. I just glued some scrap felt on the top to protect any paint that may have been applied. I can see this as a good use for applied decals to the bottom. So another tool to clutter the model desk and provide that extra hand when needed.
I will have to give credit to BlackWidow from AeroScale forums for providing the idea.
Do you have any ideas? Give them a try and let me know how they work out.
