Great paint stand. I have been using it to help paint my models by hand since I don't have a airbrush painter yet. Great basic design that works great. Height is great too as it helps bring the model up to eye height, making it easier to paint. The top spins pretty easily and I love how the top part also includes the main shaft (instead of the top having just a pin and spinning on the bottom part that usually has the shaft on it) because it means I can hold the shaft with one hand to stead the stand and quickly/easily turn it when needed. Which is easier than just holding the rim of the top part like a lot of other stands I have found.
Again, great design. Any better and it would paint the models for me :-)
