Hanger structures?

#1

Post by bluedonkey99 »

So, i saw this "hanger structure" on a twitter account and though, hhm - i recognise those supports (not withstanding he propably has too many).

I had a poke around and think i have found the materials he used to put the structure together, which are Tomix rail system accessories. Which, unlike their Euro equivalents are quite cost effective. Optionally, you could add some cladding to this framework.

A couple of packs of these masts should probably suffice for a reasonable hanger structure?

Interestingly, if you look back over his twitter he also creates a hanger completely from thin strips of styrene.
