Trestles

Have finally obtained 1/43/O gauge trestles which I thought might be handy in dioramas and display cabinets. Might sell some on eBay or to any interested members, Jerry perhaps? Different sizes available.
Cheers

That is an unsual and nice way to display some F1s. Bravo.

I agree, it definitely makes the models more interesting and lifelike.

Aside from F1 models, I think there would be a good market for these to go with the HPI Le Mans models with the removeable rear bodywork.

Nice way to make an interesting display if you have models with detachable parts.

This is a better shot. I have put them on eBay. Hope the link works.

£11 a pair. How can I sell them cheaper with reasonable shipment costs to members. They are 3D printed btw.
Perhaps PM me if interested?
Cheers

If I can make a suggestion Stewart, what about making them in "kit" form (ie separate end triangles and cross beams). This would allow them to be packed flat for shipping, perhaps making it both cheaper and reducing the risk of damage.

Maybe you could make them cheaper for a bulk buy. ie Buy 4 sets and receive a 5th set free ;) .
