Tell us about yourself!
Sadly yea. You could remedy the problem by hot gluing or epoxying a smell metal rod inside of the base since it opens up into the main support pipe. I don't have issues with the one pictured here, but another I made for a friend does have some issues standing upright. They solved it by simply gluing a bit of cardboard to the bottom widening the base enough to make it stable.
Ooo I like this, and your paint job is much nicer than mine. Excelent job!
