The two large "blocks" in the photo, which are molded to represent a section of the space dock, serve as the base for the stand. The kit includes three acrylic rods to support the completed kit, one goes under the engineering hull and two hold up the saucer section. It doesn't look real good, but will probably be effective considering the weight.

The Stand is there. It's a rectangular shaped base. Supposed to represent a piece of the space dock I believe.
Here's the direct link to the picture:

sorry. my reply did not get posted. I typed again on RMS before engaging brain.
did polar lights solve the AMT problem of unequal nacelles? They were never even with the AMT kit. How did PL deal with it?
thx - Craig

Short answer: Yes. Pins.
Ok? :)
Remind me -if you really want to see it- to put up a photo in alt.binaries.models.scale
I agree with the review who observed that the some of the fittings make this nearly a snap kit in some areas. The pylons fit to the upper secondar hull that well, as well as the nacelles to the pylons. Same thing for the inter-hull pylon.
By the way, where does a guy go to find a good quality, but economical power supply? I can find a decent 12v at the local hobby shop for a train setup, but I'm not sure it would be a good idea to use that for model lighting, unless I permanently fix it to 12v. :)
