In your post down below….can you describe how you made those flight stands for your 1/600 jets?

I got the Litko stands, but what size magnets? Are those standard ball bearings? Where did you order them from? Size? What glue do you use?

Thanks Windward (or anyone else if they know his secret!)

Happy Holidays all!!

Acctingman The balls are 3/16" diameter steel balls the magnet rings are 1/8" x1/16" x1/16" from K & J Magnetics I found Slow Zap CA as the best glue, it doesn't snap off on shock of attaching.
