Default Painting turntable.

Hi folks I thought I would put a video up of the neat little turntable I made for painting larger models and tanks.


I made this because my hands were shaking too much whilst trying to "edge" the highlights on the tank panels.
This allows me to steady my hands together or on the table edge and means I can get a nice smooth line first time with minimal touching up required.

What do you all think?

Directions would be great, I went out and bought a lazy susan for this exact purpose too.

Ah a good idea Djinn! its made from stuff at work the base was a 5mm piece of round steel, with a bearing superglued in the middle and a lightweight piece of steel on top(obviously with foam to protect the model)
I understand that the materials arnt available to everyone, but as Djinn pointed a "lazy susan" is just as good.
I needed to have a stable way of painting thin straight lines with minimal hand shake and this was the answer!
