Any sugestions? specially for the Super/Strike versions. Don't like how the Super/Strike looks with the landing gear down,.

 

Thanks

none of mine are built yet, however:

My plan is to drill a hole into the arm/arm armour, epoxy a brass tube into it, and telescope that over a brass rod mounted in a base.

depending on how well they balance [likely better than a 1/60 because of the weight difference] a flightpose stand might work [or 2 FP standsonly using 2 arms each, might be a better option].

Yetistand makes acrylic stands and adapters. he's a member on MW (@ChaoticYeti) and has several mount/interface options.

There's always the 1/48 launch arm. Looks something like this. Seeing a 1/72 here but it's very similar..3575DC4D-0143-465F-B14C-76537C27CF83.thumb.jpeg.c935d22a893c776b236a09dbdcab3446.jpeg

I bought a 1/48 launch arm off @mslz22 a few years back. Been thinking of off loading it. Wanted to make sure the kit is complete before listing it. Been bugging @mslz22 for months on any pics of it as I couldn't find any existing on this forum anymore . Where it was originally featured..

Well it is very frustrating that Hasegawa does not have a display stand available for the VF-1 Valkyries in 1/48. I know that the 1/72 are not the best also look, but at least they give the possibility of mounting the model in flight mode. The way SUPER / STRIKE looks with the landing gear is weird IMHO.

Still can't find anything usable, https://www.yetistand.com doesn't work anymore, and Flightpose is barely good (in my opinion). Any other suggestions?

I found these two online. Hope it helps.
