DSPIAE seem to be coming up with all sorts of ideas to neaten or improve the way we work, and if you’ve bought into their galaxy of red-anodised products, then this new one will undoubtedly find a place on your workbench.

When I was recently building a test of Takom’s Panther kit, being the Klutz that I am, I knocked over a full bottle of Tamiya’s Extra Thin Quick Setting glue, all over a few of the interior parts, starting them off on their journey into styrene soup. That could’ve been avoided if I wasn’t rushing and taking more care, or if I’d made myself a block to sit it within.

DSPIAE’s new product will prevent this is a very elegant way. Packaged into their now familiar heavy and heavy-duty style box with the unique Aztec-style imagery, you can’t help but be amused at the name they’ve given this new release: Overturn Preventing Glue Bottle Seat, or as their European importer and reseller Breveco Modelling, have sensibly called it, a ‘Glue Bottle Holder’. The rear of the box again describes the contents within, and opening the box reveals the now familiar ‘Thank You’ insert with images, instructions and text for the product.

The main box area contains the glue bottle holder, manufactured in a very attractive red-anodised aluminium alloy, with the DSPIAE logo printed onto it. The shape of the holder is like a four-sided pyramid with the top half sliced off, meaning the widest part is at the bottom. This is an important design feature as it means the centre of gravity of this heavy metal item is quite low, so overturning it would be a real effort indeed.

Underneath the main product is a self-adhesive rubber sheet which needs peeling and attaching to the underside of the bottle holder. The bottle holding space is big enough for my Tamiya and Gunze bottled liquid glues, and doubtless others which seem to be around the same size. There is wiggle-room too for very slightly larger bottles, should you need to use one.

Conclusion
As I have said, there are of course other ways of stopping your glue bottles falling over, but if you’ve already bought into the DSPIAE ecosystem, then this will doubtless be an addition you will want. As it stands itself, it’s superbly designed and manufactured and will do its job admirably.

My sincere thanks to Breveco Modelling for sending this out for review here on LSM. To purchase directly, click the link at the top of the article.

After melting my F-5, I find this too late. Positively brilliant!
