    heavy pewter vehicle on weak flight bases (my de talos fell off)

    How would i make the peg on the flight base stronger, or what kind fo peg should i use if that doesn't work.

    I know it's not really a "conversion" persay, but i didn't know where else to put it.

    thanks.

    You could try pinning the talos to the stand; you should drill the pinning wire quite deep into the stand however to give the entire shaft added strength (no inappropriate jokes please). If you dont like this idea, you could replace the stand alltogether with some thick metal tubing, or a nail cut to size. I've tried all the above (on heavy BFG battleships mainly) and thay all work well.

    Hope this helps

    two common solutions,
    1) clip the very top nub off the flight base and drill the hole in the bottom of the talos out to fit. Glue as needed.

    2) drill a very small hole in the top of the plastic flight base and glue in a brass pin (or bit of paperclip. drill same diameter hole inside the existing talos flightbase hole. glue as needed.


    Doh! rp252 beat me to the punch

    Don't use plastic. Use a sturdier brass pin or do away with it entirely and glue it directly to the flying base (after you rubble and flock the base.)
    And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
