Three years ago I reviewed a new model display product
called FlexiDisplay. It was a clever, timeless concept for
displaying a range of model types.
Now, the FlexiDisplay range has expanded to include
three different sizes. The original size with 4" display rods has
been joined by a smaller model with 2.5" rods, and a 6" large
FlexiDisplay is made from clear acrylic
material. It comprises a 4" x 4" heavy base, with four clear rods
attached to spherical mounts which permit a wide range of positions.
The acylic rods are capped with black rubber tips that will help avoid
the model slipping off the stand. The base also has non-slip
The stand requires assembly, but construction is
very simple. No Allen keys are needed here - just a screwdriver to
fix three screws in the acrylic base. I put my three bases together
in a total of around three minutes.
The stand is extremely well finished and looks good on
its own. However, it looks even better with a plane on top!
Your model may be posed in level "flight", nose-up,
nose down, banking or almost any other angle (subject to the laws of
gravity). However, it is important to note that the model is not
actually secured to the stand, so care is required when choosing the
pose and handling the model on the base.
As well as displaying your model, FlexiDisplay can
be a handy extra pair of hands when finishing construction. It is
especially handy as a solid base for holding your model upside-down
when attaching landing gear, ordnance and other dangly bits.
The 2.5" small stand is pictured at the top of the
page, while the photo below shows the medium 4" (front) and 6" large
The small stand is ideal for most 1/72 scale models,
while the two bigger stands will be suitable for 1/48 scale kits,
and even single-seater aircraft in 1/32 scale. In theory, the stands
could be used for any type of collectible or kit, but they are
particularly appealing as a way to pose your model aircraft in
FlexiDisplay is an attractive and
innovative way to display your favourite models.
