Make-It Monday: Small-Parts Painting Stand

Aug 12, 2013 No Comments by

Small detail parts can be blown away by the force of a spray can, or may become stuck to the surface you place them on for painting. To avoid this, make a small-parts holder using stiff wire, an alligator clip, and a block of wood. Or better yet, two alligator clips! And here’s a tip: paint small parts (such as these rear view mirrors) while they’re still on the sprue, so the clip doesn’t cover any of the part that you’re painting.

There’s a new “Make-It Monday” project every Monday (you probably could have guessed that). Got one to share? Post it on our Facebook page or Tweet it with #MakeItMonday. You also find Make-It Monday projects on their own Pinterest board. Go!

I've been involved in RC for over 25 years, and first joined Air Age Media in 1997. I served as Executive Editor until 2008, when I went to work on the manufacturing side of the RC biz. Now back at RC Car Action, I'm thrilled to be doing what I love most--not just enjoying RC, but sharing it with all of you. In addition to RC, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife Kathleen and our wonderful daughter Audrey.
