    Inspiration from Bobs409 paint drying rack

    Hi All
    After seeing Bobs409 paint drying rack http://www.homemadetools.net/forum/m...ing-rack-77787 I decided to make oneas my 1 scale traction engine ready to be painted. I felt it was a must have item to hold all the pieces that need painting. My drying rack is made of left over material and painted with red oxide paint. The arms are 6mm thick aluminium. Bobs409 has painted his and has nice features like a handle for moving and the arms are set at 45 degrees. But mine will be more than adequate for my needs.

    For a moment, I thought that it was for security!

    Not as good as yours. I haven’t got a handle to position it as accurate as you
