@blackconvoy_D01 - Interesting. Can you please share your thoughts on if they work well with the Macross valks? TIA.

 

Sure, NP! Vid link too (convinced me to try for an Arcadia VF-1S);

I’m also interested in how Calibre Wings v2 stands hold up.

Their v1 stand wasn’t very good for dynamic banking poses. Because the triangle base footprint is quite small, the whole stand tips over easily if the weight on the arms goes slightly off centre, especially if you use the longer arm.

v2 supposedly fixes this with the base now being metal for better weight stability.

Hello,


I just received my parcel from calibre wings, so a quick debrief on "router-style-display-stand-version-2-0".
For 20$ you receive :
 Nice box, heavy basement (150grams), 1 long, 3 medium and 2 short rods, no instructions.

I try it with some figures, please pardon bad quality pictures, it's late, no natural light.🙄

(1/72 vf-1s, 1/72 vf-11, 1/60 yf-29, 1/48 vf-1a, 1/60 yf-25)

My fellings are positive about this display stand. My valks are well held.😀

But you have to position you model taking care of gravity center, or stand will fall over.
note : I have broken one of the little rods by forcing while the screws were fully tightened, while trying to reposition it...😱

Its my first third party display stand, but i m convinced.😊


Anyway, these are the only ones available on the market at the moment. 😥

I would be happy to answer your questions if you have any !

The weight of the new 2.0 base is reassuring.. their old 1.0 base was only 20g.

Looking at the pics, the stand is now able to at least take the same banking angles as the regular Flightpose. But the good thing about this Router stand are the additional arms of varying lengths that come with it.

Thanks for the review. How long ago did you order? Mine is still stuck in China customs.

Mines ended up getting returned to Calibre Wings. So I'm going with the Adapter and Bandai stand.

In follow up; I ended up with the Bandai stand and shapeways adapter. I'll be fine.

mind post the link for the display adapter?

I'm trying to use the 1/60 universal display stand for perfect grade but no adapter that comes with it is compatible with the connection that comes with the toy.

The plate that holds the arms in place, is it a solid piece or is the underside hollow? I ended up throwing out the flightpose stands because the equivalent part kept breaking all the time.

Don't screw them down so hard.

Then the arms collapse under the weight of the toy that's on the stand. 

There is a sweet spot where the arms won't move but the base plate won't crack. Yes, I broke 1-3 base plates to learn this. But the sweet spot is there.

I'm currently looking at 29 Flightpose stands holding toys that don't have cracked base plates. That's not 29 flukes.;)

@anime52k8's question is legitimate -- That's been my problem with the flightpose stands as well over the years. Not supporting huge amounts of weight either, but eventually the base cracks where the rods attach and then your toy/model has a crash...

Happened to mine as well. The old stands with the black tips are way better. The base is more solid.
