HobbyKing Large Size Heavy Duty Model Stand - This easy to assemble, sturdy and nice quality stand is ideal for larger model aircraft and boats, it features non-abrasive but firm foam support pads and adjustable arms. The stand has been lightened and is flat-packed to minimise shipping cost and can be assembled in double quick time! Length: 560mm (stand Only)Height: 280mm (stand only, not inc Arms)
The wood is ok quality, however the 2 black plastic cross bars do not stay in place and keep disconnecting (they are not secured) so the stand just falls apart when its moved (if I glued it, would not be very portable)
Also, the metal female thread the 4 arm screws secure to just pop out and are not secure, so the 4 x arms just fall off, I have now secured the other side with 4 x 6mm nuts to keep them secure. Not worth £24.99, but usable.
very good and looking sharp:)
Overall the product looked and functioned as it appears in the picture, however, when I attempted to assemble it I found that the round holes drilled in the end pieces where the tubes fit into place were oversized and the tubes would not hold the end pieces in place. My remedy for this was to put a piece of shrink tubing over the end of each tube and then press it in place. This did work but I do consider this situation to be a manufacturing problem. Until this problem is resolved I wouldn't buy this productI have the medium stand of these and its big brother is just as well made and robust. Carbon tubes for the joiners are a good idea. Roughed up the ends and glued them all together with Gorrila Glue.
Solid well made and oh so useful at the field or in the workshop.The edges are a little bit rough but this is everithing negative what i can find.
I could fit from small DLG up to Big Sailplanes and 3D Airplanes.This stand is perfect for the lqrge scale planes i work on. The down side is that you need to glue it together or otherwise it falls apart when working on planes. This makes it useless for in fields repairs. I will ttry to find a nut to fit in the tubes to ba able unscrew it for field use.This thing is very usefull at the field as well as in the workroom. Highly recommended. Good quality product and worth the money.I was going to make a stand but for this money whats the point.
Its well made from laminated wood.
Much bigger than you think its going to be, only needed the medium size but it wasn't in stock.
It will be great for my big gliders but it would also be excellent for boatsArrived this morning and has already been pressed into service.
It is brilliant, where has this piece of kit been all of my life? it makes everything so much easier. Good oneWorks, but kind of on the cheap side. wood ply just slapped together and the footing is not balanced. makes a great templates to build it yourself.
