That's no good. Anyway, I've started using a washer on the bases of my models, both plastic and metal, for a couple of reasons - not least because I like the way the base looks when the flocking is glued on. Check it out.
|This is the example. The model on the left has the washer on its base; notice the subtle gradient of the base? The Terminator and Nurglesque Slayer are standing on flat bases. See the difference?|
|It wouldn't be a tip if I didn't tell you how to put it... er, do it. Take a washer...|
|...glue the washer. I originally started doing this to 1) weigh the base down and 2) use slotta bases for non-slotta models.|
|I use accelerator for everything. EVERYTHING. Forget plastic glue - I don't have that kind of time.|
|Here's an example. This model is plastic but with heavy, metal arms. He was fairly stable but the extra weight on the base means he ain't tipping over.|
|You can see the dividing line between washer and base in this pic - believe me, you can't in real life. Anyway, it's an example of the raised base close up.|
The background models are older - they don't have the washer, so they're super-boring now. Sad for them.
As an aside, I'm working on menu pages for old content. I think I'll call this section 'Just the Tip.' Too much?
