Roelof, I am think he might mean the old style, similiar to the hudy, ie. mounted on a plate / board with a spinner and shortened prop.

Here is the Nanda - Hudy clone, lol.

!This is an example!

Basically the question says it all....

Want to build an own break in stand but want to know how and with which (ready to buy?) parts.

If you have the knowledge and the machines to make it then such a question is not needed. If you want to buy all the parts it will not be cheap.

So in my opinion the only right answer is buy one.

You don't really need a Hudy style break in bench for this task . All you need is a .20 to .25 size, RC airplane nylon motor mount and a piece of plywood to mount it to. Then you mount it to a short piece of a 2x4 wood to mount and a saw horse or to lay on. A suitable 4oz RC airplane Nitro fuel tank and a On road pipe and manifold and a prop washer and I think a 1/4-20 prop nut. If you have a Spinner and a good RC airplane stater to start the engine.

Why not use an old chassis, cut the ends off, mount your tank, servo tray and an old/cheap servo. I really don't feel that the propeller is needed as some people break in their engines in the car for the first few tanks idling on the box. This simply requires an old chassis, engine mounts an old fuel tank, and maybe an old servo with a horn to keep your throttle where you want it. I built one like this to test engines when I sell them and also to do the first few tanks of break in before I mount it in my car and start to drive it around a bit. It works great, especially if you use the same type of chassis as you currently run, this way you don't have to change the starter box holding points.

Your old 1/8th scale buggy that you were about to put up on RcTech for $250 is the prefect break in bench.
