40% usually just sit on the floor or hang from the ceiling from what I have seen. Due to their size you would have to have tall ceilings to stand them on their nose.

We ended up using a truck cargo net. Hung it from eye hooks and rope. It works pretty well. The only problem is getting the landing gear and wheel pants in and out. Other than that it works pretty well. It diesnt get it out of the way all the way, it just makes it not in the way.

Wayne, I finally got into larger aircraft (9 pound Sapac extra 330) and am running outta room. My main problem is that here in AZ, summers in the garage are brutal and around above 100 at times in the garage, causing an issue of glue failure. Have you ever had any problems hanging your planes by the tail feathers like that?

I do prefer this store set up as well. Busy outfitting a spare room in a similar manner. Using the space between the fuselages to hang the wings in their bags.

I got lucky, my ol' lady worked for some people that had a store in local mall. When they shut the doors, they hired me to help in tear down and told me take what i wanted plus an hourly wage. I grabbed some of those slat boards and a wide selection of hangers.
