Verkuyl & DFM Douglas Factory replacement stands available

Postby Henry Tenby » Tue Jul 19, 2016 10:55 pm

As per the photo below, I am able to offer Verkuyl replacement and DFM Douglas Factory model stands at $160 USD plus postage.

These stands will support most 1/72 models such as F27, F28, DC-8 etc. Stand is supplied with mounting pins as per original Verkuyl specs. The DFM Douglas factory stand is for the smaller 1/72 DFM models, but it can also very easily support a 1/50 DC-9.

However, the spacing may not match the spacing of the holes under your model. Therefore, using a pair of plyers yiu can easilt remove one of the pins by unthreading it. And your model can then by mounted on the stand using one pin instead of two.

After casting the stands are cleaned and spray painted primer black. The finish is fresh from sandcasting, and not as cleaned up and smooth as a Vekuyl original stand. This level of finish requires much work (sanding, puttying, painting more than once). As such, you can achieve this level of finish by doing your own prep work on the stand if so desired. Or, you can use the stand as supplied.

For comparison the original Verkuyl stand is the one on the centre left. As well as upper right.

Please message me or contact me should you wish to place an order. (Minimum order quantity is 3 stands).

Sadly I cannot make these any more as the local foundry has closed down.
