3D printed stands for Tamiya paint stand

Hi All,

I recently bought a dehydrator to help cure painted bodies; so far so good. But I needed to create a shorter bottom section for the Tamiya paint stands I use so that the stand and model could fit. I designed and 3D printed the ones below. One has a substantially wider foot-print but is more stable with larger bodies. Once I finish spraying I simply transfer the top section over. The fit is not super tight, but this make life easier with a painted body to consider!

If anyone is interested send me a pm and I can send the stl file across.

Cheers,
Grant.

Given you are in NZ and I am in Aus, it should not be too expensive to ship you one if you are interested...
