1/32 Table?
« on: May 30, 2015, 06:36:13 PM »
Currently in the middle of my WNW Roland build and thinking ahead as to how to display it - with the engine cowlings off, i would like them to sit beside the model on a suitable period maintenance table.

Any recommendations as to finding one...EBay search fruitless..

try 1/35 scale. differance in scale is not so great. (you can always shorten the legs if you feel it is to big)

You could get the RFC Mechanic and table.  Reassign the
mechanic and keep the table for the Roland. ;) ;D

Scratch-building inspiration: two of the maintenance tables in the WW1 hall at NASM/Washington, D.C. :)

Yes, since they were just wooden 2x4's nailed together with whatever sized boards they had for the top they should be easy to scratchbuild using basswood strips available in the model railroad section.  Just find a photo of one like above and estimate the size needed in 1/1 scale and divide by 32, this should give you size of wood needed to make the finished table.  And making real wood look like wood is much easier than painting a piece of resin!
