Revell Voyager display question
« on: August 28, 2018, 03:08:53 am »
Hi all. i am currently doing a fully lit Revell Voyager. I will be wanting the model in `flight mode` like at an angle when it`s finished. Any suggestions on how i can get the ship at an angle? I only have brass tubes at the moment.

Appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks.

If you have a collection of straight brass tubing already, you can get an inexpensive tube bender (such as https://www.harborfreight.com/1-8-eighth-inch-to-1-4-quarter-inch-tube-bender-94571.html and https://www.harborfreight.com/tubing-bender-3755.html) to make permanent and kink-free bends to whatever angle you desire.

For adjustable angle mounts, some people use brass lamp friction swivels such as those found here: https://www.grandbrass.com/category/swivels-friction_swivels/.  These offer various degrees of poseability when used with model kits.

Finally, you can also try finding firm goose neck mounts.  These would allow you to position a model in virtually any position.

I hope this helps.
