Carlos Martin explains how he has built a handle (mainly) for armour models. Easy and affordable, it holds the model on any position.

That is a nice non-destructive solution. I've seen a variant where they actually screw the handle fitted with a screw into the base of the model. Differenet stroke for different folks.

Brilliant idea, I wish I would have thought of it myself.
