Hi everyone! Well I got a package in the mail from the USA today and inside was my Flight Stands from Fight's On. I did a product review of these great stands. Check them out at my blog.
Thanks

Nice looking stands, I don't have them, but have a bunch of other cool goodies from Fight's On.

So I have a bunch of 1/144 plastic pre-painted models from Japan, and I'd pretty much given up on using them for lack of good flight stands. And then you post this, and I go looking for my copy of CY6 and go to eBay looking for more planes and now I hate you… grin

I bought some of these recently via Heroics.

It looks as if mine didn't have the small rings that go in the centre of the stand?

Consequently the magnet columns aren't a good fit for the stand hole, don't stand upright and even a small plane causes the column to topple over/break the column (the magnets don't stick together that well).

I've since used the perspex rods that come with Litko stands as these fit the hole better.

My apologies for not seeing this note earlier.

We had a small problem w/ the 2nd run of the Cadillac stand's inner diameter hole being slightly too large. This produced the 'wonky-ness' experienced by BattlerBritain.

As a result, we have begun to include a 1/4" OD ring magnet, w/ a 1/8" ID hole which perfectly fits the altitude magnets. Please check back on our website to see this improvement, and a graphic on how the altitude bands work.

Any buyer of the old stands can get a free ring magnet set by contacting Andy Kirk at H&R or Fight's On! directly. All that's required is drilling out the hole to 1/4" and gluing in the ring magnet. We now do this for all new purchases.

Cheers,
