I have been looking around for some good 1/144 model stands but dont know what to get. Most stands dont specify a size and I dont remember if the stand I use from my 1/100 gouf custom had a male part that would work with a 1/144 model. Or if I would even want to, considering how large it is compaired to the model.

Im looking to have 2 of the four original Gundam 00 suites on stands (behind two on foot) for a possible shelf display.

I've got 3 of these types, all red ones. They come with 4 different tops, they fit all my 1/144s and if they don't have a peg hole they have a something that'll just hold it at its' crotch area.

I've never had a problem, in fact:

Just one of those stands can hold up two 1/144 HG models.

I might use something like that for a reborns, I will look around on that site for a clear stand or maybe a black. How tall do the stands you have get?

Currently a black or clear stand is out of stock for GSAM, and just gimme a few minutes I'll just take a few pics of one of my stands.

***EDIT***

First up is the tops the stand comes with.

Then the stand at the lowest it can go.

Then the stand at the highest it can go.

And finally the stand at it's lowest pitch.

I really want those federation and zeon symbol stands now lol

Only thing is that I dont have a lot of UC models right now.

Ok, thanks for the pictures. That kind of gives me an idea what I need. Where else could I look to order stands? Are certain websites better in terms of showing support for hobby?

Yeah I need to pick up a Zeon one. The feddies....meh to them. Hope you were able to tell the size, the pictures suck for some reason.

Typically Action base #2 is for high grade / 1/144ths, Action Base #1 is for master grade / 1/100s but can be used for 1/144, but their too big and look awkward for them.
