Very cool walt! Alot of diorama builders could use this tip! Jack stands are sometimes hard to come by and to make your own is cheaper and they still look good.

I know this will be revealing my age, we used to use old Ford (pre-'49)axle housings for jack stands! I made a set from the AMT '40 Willys kit, but there are a lot of kits that had the separate housings, including kits that had Quick-change rear ends.
