    They are hangar parts. I got them on ebay, do a search on mechanical chain nest or hangar.

    I can built a big enough hangar to take photos of a mp01 prime if needed.

    Not cheap, heads up, and I have not gotten to paint the hangar yet.

    Sorry, that was taken a while back and I have dismantle the hangar. It is just a bit a hassle to dig up the boxes.

    They come in set of 6, so you have to combine set 1,2,3,4 whatever combination and depends on how big and tall you require.

    You will see them roughly at $150 for whole set I think but technically some of the sets are not pleasing or required for me so only sets 1,2,3 are required for length and height.

    http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/TT-MECHAN...item2a2b6cd498

    When I said $150 I mean entire set 1-10 most places sell 1-6. you find only 1,2,3 are the main ones required for basic base and height. 4-6 are the sides.


    Basically if you ask me, I say buy 1,2,3 and 7,8,9. I don't find the sides any much useful, but each to their own.

    I bought the KO version, meaning these are "china" made.

    The originals are by Kotobukiya maybe named mechanical chain base etc.
