What size and weight would you suggest for 1:72 diecast planes? Looks great! Was discussing this with you at Nashcon. Glad to see such quick turnaround on a product!

Do I understand that the screw goes into the aircraft model, or is there an intermediate step?

These would require a regular or small mount to be attached to the model that would receive these. The magnet tips that were already available need mounts as well, this just looks like a more traditional, direct attachment, option.

It requires one of our mounts to be attached to model. The magnetic tops are just not strong enough for some models.
1/72nd scale die cast planes might overload the rod. The heavier models start to bend the rod a lot as you get higher. You can use only the bottom thicker sections and just not extend it the enter length. This gives you some variation in height. About 5" to 10" or so.
As an example. I have a 3.3 ounce Devilfish model that is a little woobly at full extension. I have another bigger Imperial guard vendetta that weights 7.4 ounces. It works out to the first two an a half extensions. About 10" off the table.
