DIY plane sand/storage ideas.

So I live in a semi small apartment with not quite the right storage for my recent purchase of the alpha 40. I have a shelf that I can put it on if I had a stand. I was wanting to build one myself, any ideas on how?

Plane Storage

I live in a apartment and stumbled upon this idea works great even with the wings on. Just take a plastic coat hanger and cut out the middle section and bend with a heat gun to fit your needs.

Surprising just how much weight this hanger and small cup hook can hold.

Plane Stand

Yes simple works.

So on that thought here is a nice stand you might like.
Made from 1/2 " pvc sch 40 pipe secured with self tapping pan head screws.
Used pipe insulation and a volunteer pool noodle

I use it for my electric and glow planes for work and transport.
