I discovered this technique today.
You know how metal models come with bases with slits in them, and below the models feet is a rod that you insert into the slit? Well, this guide tells you how to recover the base after a model's feet rod has been glued in.
First, rock the model back and forth on it's feet until it comes off altogether (leaving the rod in the hole). Next, take a lighter and slowly heat the bottomside of the place the rod is stuck in. After it partialy melts, push the rod out slowly. Use the base for whatever purpose you like, and make sure you paint and flock it. If you do it correctly, you'll never know you melted part of it.

Thanks, that could be helpful. The main problem is that the model has lost his metal rod, which means you cant attach him to another base very easily.

i actually take off the metal rod with pliers and grind it off with a grinder i have in my garage. then i glue a washer to the bottom of the base and glue the model to it. it holds really well, and it hasn't broken off yet. works wonders, but it is difficult to do without power tools.
