Walter Walters Jr. Performance Stand

I was surprised but I received a few questions from different folks wanting to see and know how Walter Walters Jr. kept his figures hanging on the underside of the performance stand so rather than write to each person I decided to photograph and show how he accomplished this set up.

Attached to the back side of the shoulder board he attached what to me look like ordinary kitchen cabinet handles. The on the performance stand center post he attached U shaped brackets on to which those handles would sit.




A unique but rather simple way of accomplishing the set up. All he had to do was lift the figure off the u shaped holder and place on the stand above.
