  1. Hi there! #DIY Sanding stick. During building my models I need to sand plastic. Sanding sticks are the best way to do this. I make them myself. For this you will need: -sanding paper(any grit you need) -double side foamed tape -plastic card or any piece of plastic -sharp knife -ruler First cut strip of plastic and sand edges to make them smooth. Then cut a piece of foamed tape and glue to plastic strip. Cut off excess tape. Cut necessary strip of sanding paper and glue it to the stick with tape. If you need double side sanding stick then glue sanding paper from another side.
  2. These are Some DIY AB Paint Stands that my buddy "FREDDIE" helped me with. They are totally interchangeable & capable of moving in just about any direction or angles needed (the goalpost looking ones arms & base swivel) for your part needing to be painted. I built them using cast iron flanges 3/4" + all 3/4" pipe & fittings. I just add some 10-15lb mounting tape to the different size plastic bushings, that hold the part. The Iron Flange & Pipe fittings add enough weight to give your part that nice STURDY SOLID feeling to your parts needing paint! I added some leftover gloss rattlecan black paint enamel on the iron sections making them cleanable & looking nice.... Very Simple to make, inexpensive & easy to locate parts at most any Hardware shop.... enjoy, Lee
