Omni-Stand Tutorial for 1/300 scale P51D Mustang

This tutorial will show you how to attach an Omni-Stand mounting peg to a Scotia 1/300 scale P-51D mustang. They are available here.

What you need:

Hobby Knife

Omni-Stand Mounting Peg

Epoxy

This model is to small to drill a hole in. We are going to attach the mount flush to the model.

First step is to prep the mounting peg. Score the top several times to give it a rough surface for the epoxy to stick to. You can score the miniature as long as your careful not to score to large an area.

 

Now to mix the epoxy. We use our mixing syringes filled with some Devcon 30 minute epoxy. We recommend epoxy for this because most other option like CA glue are to brittle and not strong enough to give you a permanent hold.

Now we attach the mount close to the center of the plane.

Now we wait for the epoxy to cure. Once that is done the plane is ready for use with the Omni-Stand system. This plane works great with our sphere magnet mounts.
