Has Anyone Used These Trumpeter Aircraft Stands?

am guessing the model on the box is a 1/72 kit?
I don't build that scale and am wondering if they are big enough for
1/48 or 1/32 WWII size kits.
thx - Craig

Granted, its only a couple of miles from my house, but I would imagine that you might find similar sources elsewhere.

I have one. My 1/72 Heller CR 714 fits on it. The verticals have differing contours on all 4 sides so I suspect you can put up to single engine 1/48 comfortably. Cute idea, price isn?t horrible. Bout what I paid retail at the LHS.
One of the following posts is right. You could buy acrylic rod and cut and finish a small block of wood. But by the time you are done and you still have to put a hole and mount in the plane...

I generally improvise - the box the kit came in usually works, or/and I have a tendency to collect foam packing blocks from work. I can cut those up into any size/shape I want or use them as is. I don't paint on them though...strictly use them as construction stands/aids.
I paint on cardboard chunks...which I also get from office discards. Use till useless, throw them away and start with another. Again - the kit box works for that too.

They have partial sheets or 1/8" acrylic also, Rufus. I make acrylic cases for all of my finished models.
Keeps the dust out and if your so inclined, you can do small dioramas as well. I made wooden right angle jigs many years ago so cutting out and finishing the edges of the acrylic is the relatively time consuming part.

That's what I'm thinking - display case(s).
