The ability to hold the model's various parts
while you are spray painting them
and then being able to store the parts for
drying, requires a little planning.
In this case, we have a portable wooden table (on wheels) that we
drilled 3/8" and 3/4" holes into the top. The holes bottom out into the wood
frame below. Mount the parts on balsa sticks or dowels as appropriate, such
that they are convenient to hold for painting, then insert the sticks into the
table top for cure. We learned this trick from Sam Leonard.
This paint stand is very handy to work on a
fuse in preparation for painting. The fuse can be rotated as required for easy
application of the paint. You can leave it mounted for applying masking tape,
multiple colors and even for the riveting process.
Unfortunately this stand is not commercially available unless you
can talk Tom Robertson into making some more.
