Does anyone make flight stands to move aircraft in groups of 3 or 4? I'm talking of smaller (Tumbling Dice size) miniatures. My Google efforts have been woefully poor so far.

It wouldn't be difficult to make something like that?

Somebody not too long ago posted about using plastic wine glasses, turned upside down, for aircraft stands. Seems like that might work for this?

mwindsorfw, may I ask what rules you have in mind?

I am also looking to move groups of 3-4 aircrafts… but don't have the rules yet :/

There are lots of options for small groups of spacefighters, so you could probably use something like that.

All use clear, thin, plastic or plexiglass.

I've made some by hand in the past, for vics and flights. I use a razor-knife for cutting the plex to shape. Insert a magnet in the center, and mount them to telescoping antennae for representing various altitudes.

Of course, you can just mount them to fixed aircraft bases, if you prefer.
