I just posted a couple of shots of US and Japanese planes getting ready to tangle over a jungle in the Pacific. The planes were all mounted on telescoping flight stands from CorSec Engineering. The flight stands have 5 positions and the planes mount magnetically to a ball on the end of the stand. I switch to short static stands for level 1. They really add a lot to the visual appeal of the game and convey height much more effectively. They are also very stable for most of the A20 / BH planes (P-38 and Me-110 are less stable due to weight).


OBTW, the little float plane evading the Americans is a balsa carving from SJM Warplanes on ebay.

Here is a picture of some Japanese planes on the flight stands: https://boardgamegeek.com/image/3202371/axis-allies-air-forc...

And here is a link to the CorSec Engineering page that made them.

I used the telescopic stands with hex bases. I choose the spherical tip and for the planes the Small Omni-Stand Mounts: http://www.corseceng.com/products/omni-stand-small-mount-1 These Mounts will fit right into the base of an A&A Angels 20 / Bandits High plane. This allows you to pivot the plane for a dive, climb, bank just like the plastic stands. The only planes that don't like this were the ME-110 and the P-38 due to mass.

I will post some close-ups - Update: actually they have close-ups on the CorSec website
