Default Drive stand project.

A few weeks ago I picked up a couple of speedmaster 3As for my top gun project. Along with the drives I picked up the need for a couple of stands. After reviewing my requirements and doing a couple of rough sketches, this is the design that I came up with. I still need to put on a couple of finnishing touches on the first one before it is ready for paint but the first test fitting went very well. I thought that I would share some of the pictures that I took along the way.

Why dont you just go with the bare metal look. I kinda like the raw finish better than paint.

I do too Jason but if I don`t paint them, I will have the rusty drive stand look before too long.

I`m going to strip the red paint off the drives and repaint them black with new decals. I` pretty sure that I won`t be able to leave the lowers the way they are and not polish them.

Wow, nice work. I was thinking about starting a thread ealier today about drive stands to get some ideas. I want something that doesnt take up much space, and can easily move around smaller drives like X's and XR's and the occasional Alpha.
