The DX stands are made to hold up the weight of the fully decked out plane (unless there is a hidden manufacture defect on the stand itself).

Other option us to use fishing wire as backup and don't put it up too high. 

If your so paranoid about taking it out then leave it in the box and choke it death as there is no fresh air. :diablo:

I guess I'm more concerned that over time the plastic will bend or even worse fail.

The lock point at the base seams a little thin and I can already see a tiny lean to the right.

..Damn you joint account.

HA! I feel you. We had separate accounts for YEARS and then combined them a couple of years ago. I had to be like.... wellll if you are concerned then we can go back to separate accounts. That seemed to do the trick and doesn't come up often now.

Mod Roy here.

Just cleaned up a bunch of stuff.  Maybe I remove too many posts.  Maybe I didn't remove enough.  Didn't have time to read and evaluate them all.  We have a no politics rule here.  It is one of the big rules.  Please don't force us to close this topic or force us to take any further action.   Please play nice.

Ummm... did lightning just blow this guy's clothes off?????

I always loved how no one knew that Prince Adam was He-Man. At least Superman had glasses and a different hair-do. Adam is just He-man with clothes on.

It also gave Adam a nice tan allover which made him unrecognizable to a lot of people especially those close to him. 

He-man is just Prince Adam after a weekend at Fire Island

Pretty much. Crazy what they showed in the 80’s lol. Kinda like in DYRL when Hikaru smacks Minmei and watching that now makes me cringe a little.  At least later on in Macross the guys get slapped a bit like Alto and Hayate.

And this is why I have been put off this line.   I have enough expensive hobbies as it is,  and a happy Mrs. is the most expensive one.. lol

I FINALLY bit the bullet and picked up the Fokker 1S damn you @sqidd and your links.   I also just went and got the missle set, at some point before they become unobtanium I need a strike/super set.    But I really am having a hard time justifying the price points for any of this.

Saw a SSP set on Mandarake this morning for 15k yen, sealed. I passed because I am currently all in for Mr. Focker..looking to get two sets at least.

How many are you getting and how many is enough?:p I have a feelin' some would go for three because it is a magic number.
