Default Attaching Flying Bases to Large bases (For Crisis)

How do you do it? I've been using drone flying bases... but thats not legal, is it?

So, how do I do this?

Look underneath. You see all those strange circular holes. Chose the one you want and drill through to finish the hole. Or at least that is my assumption from looking at it. I just used hot glue and made a small mound of it but then again thats just because I dont have a drill or a knife capable of the task.

Yup what "Vash113" said. Be sure toexamine the holes carefully and pick out the right one to use, to keep your CS's balanced.

The method I used was the "Flying Battlesuit" approach.

Basically, I placed the Suits on the flying stands, complete with the smaller Drone-stand base. Afterwards, I glued the entire stand to the top of the larger base.* Very simply done, and a perfect fit.* It shouldn't be overbalanced, but one can always add a small counterweight underneath if falling becomes an issue.

Good luck!

So I need a drill... ah whatever. I'll try it with a knife.

Knifes in gerneral are a lot more mesy than drills (since I use drills and tried knofes for my bases). However, when you base it, it shouldn't be much of a problem.

I just used a round file and twisted it for about 1 min until it broke through. It works just fine
