    Hi all,
    I'm struggling to find a tool that will hold a heavy 90mm lead horse for painting.
    Any products out there readily available or DIY ideas anyone know of?
    Regards Glenn

    Thanks housecarl,
    How are they used to support the horse?

    Pin the the hooves Glenn, then use the blocks to grip them.

    For my 90m/m black knight I epoxied the pinned horse to the manufactures base and wood base and filled the bottom of the base with epoxy and screwed the base to a block of wood for handling. That block was also the base for the finished work. Worked fine for me.
    Good luck

    Thanks John. I've got the 90mm Andrea Chassuer Cheval which has the pins on one front and one rear leg which is the only means of support.
    Regards Glenn

    Hi Glenn, I find this useful for most weights and adjustable from many directions. It has a very heavily weighted base but not enough to prevent it from being lifted for painting.

    Very nice, and looks very strong. I've ordered one shown above by Keith from Ebay.
