I built a 1/72 ME-109 as some additional air support for my tank game at Spartacon link

Looks really nice.

Thanks pmwalt, somewhere along the line Airfix re-molded this kit, it is much nicer than the rivetty horror of my childhood

That looks great Anton, an excellent paint job. Can you please show us how you made your flying stand? I am about to start an airfix hawker typhoon to use for gaming but am not sure of the best way to go about making a suitable stand. Yours looks very stable.

The base is an old CD (Madonna, I think) then I epoxied a large fender washer to the center to give it some mass. On top of that I affixed an extendable magnet (sold at tool shops as a "magnetic hand" for picking up dropped screws and small parts). It is essentially an old-fashioned collapsible antennae with a powerful magnet on the end. Glue a bit of steel to the bottom of your model and you are in business.
