Decals - because little planes just aren't as cool without them...
600-GE-1 Balkan Cross, early war, thin
600-GE-2 Balkan Cross, early war, thick
600-GE-10a Swastika Tail Markings
600-GB-6 Type A1 side panels

And a hundred 1mm x 3mm circular N50 magnets for the basing. I've had a gutful of broken flight stands over the years so I'll give magnets a go I think. Tally-Ho!

And just found a review of BtH2 here:
Actually, with a handful of 1/600 planes this would be a cracker.

HQ Warboss with heavy chopper and hvy armour(scrimped on points so no mega armour for him...he managed to survive surprisingly well) Wierdboy psyker with warphead reroll(undecided about this guy, Jase painted him to an awesome level for me (pics to follow) but in game his effect was a little random...which is actually grounds to keep him in an Ork list :))Elites 3 Meganobs with Trukk dedicated transport (count as troops with a warboss) 4 Lootas and a Mek with Kustom Mega blasta
Fast Attack 3 Deffkoptas with twin linked rokkits and one BigBomm (see earlier pics)
Troops 2 lots of 30 Boyz with choppa and slugga,a big shoota and rokkit launcher each,as well as 1 basic Nob each without upgrades (a mistake) 19 shoota boys (who stuck with the wierd boy, mainly just to see what stoopid things he'd do)
Heavy Support Deffdread with big shoota and rokkit launcher(its how it came when I got it off ebay, I should have taken the flamer option) Battlewagon open topped with Kannon and Big shoota (became the bunker for the Lootas) Looted Wagon with Boomgun (a Basilisk) The list was pretty tame really, I didn't max out any units with cheesy nastiness (darn it) so no powerklaws on the Nobs to open tanks and only a smattering of Lootas and deffkoptas with bigbomms (needed twice as many)

And so I went to work this weekend to make me one. I used scrap wood and an old rake handle cut into 6cm sections. Holes were drilled with a spade bit, leaving 4cm between holes so I can get my fingers inbetween and get the fig I want. I made it in a 12 x 2 config so it doesnt take up too much desk space. I had some spare bits left over so made a smaller one for smaller projects. The stands comfortably hold up to a 25mm fig on a slotta base. So, job done, now just got to put it into action. And I've just now realised that Autumn is not faraway and SWMBO will be looking for the handle-less leaf rake soon..
