How the hell do you display a parachute ?????????

Postby Andy1672 » 10 Oct 2008 20:10

I have 2 mint condition parachutes tucked away in a drawer.

one for my SAS sparrowhawk and the other for my 1st series paratrooper.

does anyone have any toptips for displaying an "open" parachute ?

Could you use fishing wire to any effect from the ceiling?
Landing onto the display shelf/cabinet.

another possibility !!

I wanted to achieve that "fully open" look

suppose fishing wire would do, but could be a bit fiddly !

You build your own stands Andy.
Fishing wire should be a walk in the park for you:)
