The is famous clear swivel display stand. Complete with Metal spring ring and mounting ball which comes from the Lockheed electra kit. Ball is molded in White. Assembly Required.
This display base is a reproduction of the famous Revell "Revellving" display stand that came with many of that company's box scale aircraft models during the 1950's. The clear styrene plastic base featured a global mercator motif of parallels and meridians, with a circular area in which to place the decal that included the aircraft's name and manufacturer's logo. Classy way to display your model on a desktop or bookshelf - and tell admirers a little about the subject. Nice to have available again. There is an aesthetic quality to displaying aircraft as they appear in flight.
Atlantis has updated the writing molded on the stand's base. Now it credits Atlantis instead of Revell. Good for building some of the old Revell kits in your stash that no longer had the stands included. Also works on many other brands of kits, just be careful of the size you put on it! I would make the suggestion that in future releases to mold the ball in clear plastic. I'm pretty sure the Revell stands sold individually years ago had the balls in clear. This is a very minor matter, not even a problem!
The old Revell writing around around the center has been replaced with Atlantis information keeping original Revell stands collectible. Would give it a five if the mounting ball was molded in clear plastic instead of the noticeable white.
Just like the original ones. Nice reproduction. Recommended.
Updated reissue of classic Revell stand. I would give it five stars if the ball had also been molded in clear plastic. A lot of older Revell kits issued in the 80's omitted the stand and they really display best with it.A very welcome accessory for my older and yet to be built kits!
These are the best of the vintage display stands that were included in model airplane kits back in the 1950s. And, it's great to see them available individually. The set includes not only the base, but the ball swivel that you glue to an aircraft (airplane, helicopter, space ship) to mount it onto the stand. The stands can be used on a desktop or shelf, or hung on a wall and will hold a model outward or upward. The stands are good for the old box scale planes, and kits up to something like a 1/48 World War 2 fighter plane like the P-39.
