    Here's a quick couple of shots of what I did. I wanted to be able to pose it. Yes, the stand is highly inspired by the one John Simmons did. Clean and simple.

    I've thought about a tripod mount like that. My only concern is that if the ball comes loose if the knob gets bumped or whatever, then the thing can flop forward and hit something, getting damaged. Since there's a slot in the ballhead that lets the ball tilt down 90 degrees.

    I use the same Panavise stands for my studio scale models that are much heavier. I'm not worried about it with the weight of this model.

    A good effective way to display your model. I agree, this FaLcon isn't heavy enough to cause the ballhead to slip.

    I like the subtle weathering on this and the fact that it is not taken directly from the 5 foot reference pics online as it looks like the sidewalls on the 5 footer were "rusted up" after "STAR WARS" The best photo I have seen is the original MPC model box, that shows very little rust -Especially on the Entex. You nailed it.

    Pledge with Future shine floor polish. It's name has changed a bit over the years. Used to be just "Future".

    It's a very inexpensive gloss coat and protectant for clear model parts.

    It's floor wax, officially now "Pledge with Future" (at least here in the States). Long-time modeling trick is to dip clear canopies in Future to give them more of a glass look. I'd link to product, but don't want to link to incorrect version (IIRC, you do NOT want Future for wood floors). Also good for gloss coats.

    Future Floor Polish.

    OMG! floor polish??? I've would never tought about that!! thanks guys!

    we have an equivalent liquid self-brilliant floor polish here (do not worry, does not work for wood).
