  The Cub Stand, 1/3rd Scale

The first KidCole model was the 1/3rd Scale Cub Stand. This stand was designed to complement Ted Maciag’s 1/3rd Scale Elto Cub ignition motor.  When I first started shipping these, I planned to match Ted's 60 scale motors. All of the stands are numbered "#1 of 60" <etc>. But I have decided that I will only make 45. I will explain the reduction in more detail below. The numbering is not exactly 1 through 45 because people have ask for Stand numbers to match their Cub numbers. I will post the exact numbers of all stands made, once they are all sold out.

My 1/3rd scale stands are hand made from a special type of hardboard. The face artwork was created orginally from a photo graph to get the outline. And then about 60 hours later I completely replaced every pixel from the print with solid color artwork. I spent two full days balancing the colors to achieve the final look, which exactly matches one of my two originals. I also learned through this project that the colors on the originals are not exactly the same. The colors on one of my original Cub Display stands are slightly more washed out than the other. So although my scale stands are as precision as possible, they may or may not match yours. This depends on how much your original stand was exposed to direct sun.

All of my stands are numbered, nicely packaged in a form fitted box with enclosure materials.

My scale stands are well protected from UV fading. If you notice any problems (during my lifetime) I will make you a replacement face.

Anfortunately for my first project, there were some others who made attempts at 1/3rd scale Cub stands. Even though those stands were poorly made, their presence did cut down the number of interested parties. The first person to buy one of mine, who also had one of those "other" stands, was over whelmed with clarity and sharp details. His comment to me was "You can even see the guy's fishing line and the little bird sitting on his shoulder !"

There are still a few of these stands available for purchase. Just email Denny@KidColeModels.com for a quote.
