Another way to base Aeronef Mini's

Postby Captain Gideon » Sat Sep 29, 2007 12:45 am

I was looking over in the gaming section and checking out stuff including basing Aeronef Vessels.

First off i like the bases that you use for the Aeronef ships i use the same bases for my StarBlazers Spaceship mini's.

Now i could base the Aeronef ships like the person was saying but there's always that chance that the ship will fall over and break off from the stand.

So this is the other way that you can base the Aeronef mini's with the same bases.

What i do is break off the peg and then drill into the stand using a pin vise.

Then i drill a small hole into the bottom of the ship and then glue a small piece of wire into the ship,and then position it in the base.

This way is also good for storing the mini's as i've done it with 100's of my StarBlazers mini's,which are in boxes with foam.

I just wanted to share this with the members here.

Thanks

Good tip - thanks :D

Sounds fiddly though - how long did each of these take?

I really like the SB ships, but always baulked at the price!

Yep, good idea Cap'n. I've done similar things in the past with smaller models (and from what I've seen, some of the SB models are very small).

Another tip is to drill the hole for larger models to fit the whole of the post, not just the little nib at the end.

Drilling the hole in the stand

Postby Captain Gideon » Sun Sep 30, 2007 7:09 pm

The nice thing about the StarBlazers ships is that ALL the ships are in scale to one another,which is pretty good.

As to the question about how long it takes to drill into the stand once the peg is taken off,i'd say a matter of minutes since you have to drill into the stand.

Also the stand has air bubbles in the stand and depending on where the air bubbles are the time varies,because if the air bubbles are near the top then you won't have to drill that far/much.

...of course you could use rare-earth magnets instead of drilling down into the stand. Easy to do and transport in a tin buscuit box = no movement (and yes I wish I'd found out about this years ago too).

Check out Doms Decals for some small ones (even used them on the Eldar Heavy Weapon to swap the five provided gun types around!)
