The photo of the stand that you posted looks like it was made from plastic spreu. You could easily make one out of sprue or use Evergreen and or Plastruct tubing to make your own. It's really not that difficult at all.

I know what your talking about, I wondered myself seeing some that where of a common design in pictures. Can't tell but I think they may be getting them from somewhere. Just look through "Show me your engine" threads an you'll see some that are on scratch built stands. Here is a link to a post in a thread that uses the stand I've seen from a few people. http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=49297&view=findpost&p=551675

One way I used was just to freeforn one as it it was made of pieces laying around the garage, I used various pieces of plastic shapes .. channel, angle, I-beam and sheet plastic.
