Alright, I'm still new to assembling models in general (used to play with friend's models), so when I came upon the Ravener and Zoanthrope, I noticed that there's pegs on the bottom of these models and that there are holes on the bases. My question is, what do you use in order to drill the hole? I tried a hand pin vise but, it's just taking forever and I fear that a electric drill would break the base. Sorry for the nooby question.
Pinvice then knife works good for me. I guess an electric drill would also work though if you're careful. I used to use one of those bradle things (can't remember name, think its a bradle), you know those things with a pointy tip on the end which you can just push through, theyre the perfect size for it. Just clean up after that if you know what I mean.
Just take your xacto blade, insert the tip into the pinvice hole, and twirl the blade around in a cirlce. This will bore out a hole.
SUGGESTION!!! Stop twirling the blade after every couple of turns and test fit the piece you are putting inside the hole. You want it to be snug rather then lose so as soon as it can barely fit, you've drilled enough.
Thanks for the replies!

You're talking about the "destroyer" bases, right?
For me, I found none of my pin vise bits were the right size, so I looked into my Dremel kit. I found a bit that was the perfect size. I turned the base over, then took the bit (not the whole drill, just the bit) and stuck it up through the cylinder on the underside of the base corresponding to where I wanted the hole to be. Pushed it up against the bottom of the base, then a few good twists by hand, and pop! There you go!
Works for me, anyway.
My pinvice came with 2 different clamps (the second one is hidden in the handle). I went through an ordinary drill set to find an appropriately sized bit to steal, which actually fits in the largest of the pinvice's clamps, and voila - big drill pinvice.
