Default Acrylic Stands for Panzer Muzzle Brake and Track Link

I thought these came out pretty nice so I wanted to show them here. I made these for my upcoming D-Day display to provide a sort of floating image for the Panzer IV muzzle brake and Tiger I track link. I am going to make stands for all my firearms and ordnance also. I wasn't planning on offering a service to make custom stands but if you have something you need, i might be able to help you out with it. Comments welcome. Thanks for looking.

I'm dead jealous of your muzzle brake. I have a nice representative collection of Panzer track links but I'd really like a muzzle brake and I've always liked the flattened shape of the Panzer IV's.

Yes - Well done
Looks really Good and Professionally made.

I'm still need to make stands for my Panzers I/II - III/IV - and Panther Track Links.

Kind regards,
Pete.

If anyone has any other ways they display a track or muzzle brake, please show. Thanks to all for the comments.

War - Tiger I Track Link Stand

Hi All,

Made my Tiger I Track Link stand out of Plywood/wood.

Started off with a section of Tiger I Sprocket Ring and used that as a Template to create the rest of the sections.








Was not happy with the the stand this way so I added a frame to the two sections.







Still needs finishing off - bit of paint or varnish

I also want to incorporate the original piece of Sprocket section into a section of the stand.
I will make a hidden bracket to secure it to a section of the stand that I will cut out - thats the plan anyway


Then of course I wanted to know how big a complete Drive Sprocket Ring would be - so I made one out of some thinner Plywood.



Not sure yet what I will use this for.

I will keep you all updated i when I make the stand for my Panzers I/II , III/IV , and Panther Track links.

Kind regards,

Pete.

Thanks for that - I personally prefer your stands to mine.

Mine are very 'Rough-and-Ready' - but I suppose they do the job.

Kind regards,
Pete.

War - Tiger I Track Link Stand

Hi All,

Here is what I was originally thinking of with the complete stand - make it look a bit like the front end of a Tiger:




The middle part can be used to display lots of other items.


Another Idea was this one for smaller parts:






I was going to use one of my Tiger Shells at the back of the stand - the stand could be lifted off the shell if needed.

I may still make them both at some point.


Kind regards,
Pete.
