Hello,

I am looking for Wings of War style flight stands where height is marked by stacking pegs on top of one another. I am interested in playing CY6 using this method for marking altitude, has anyone seen a good solution for doing this?

I am particularly interested in making sure the flight stands are as narrow and invisible as possible.

Thanks in advance

Might consider CorSec's telescoping rods:

Lego is a very cost effective and customisable solution. You can buy transparent radar dishes for the bases and transparent cylinders for the stand. A 1-stud flat topped square plate makes an ideal peg topper.

I am using telescopic Antennas from Farm and Fleet or Radio Shack about $4.00 USD each mounted to hex style bases.

You can buy bases at both Litko and Wings of Glory Aerodrome. If all you are looking for are the pegs you can get them at Aerodrome

If you have never used with WoW pegs before I suggest you pick up some woodland scenics tack glue. Apply a small amount to the male end of each peg. Once dry it helps ensure the pegs do not fall apart wich they are notorious for doing. I hated the WoW pegs because they never stayed together. Since discovering this trick I have had no issue no matter how high they are stacked.

HTH,

Aaron
