I'm in the process of designing miniature spaceships and I realized I don't know the exact dimension of the holes in the bottom of miniatures where the spaceships attach to the flight stand.

Can someone help me out? Referring to stands like these:

Miniature wargamers, yes.

I'll try and remember to measure for you when I get home. If I forget, message me!

The top of my standard flight stands is approximately 2.75mm in diameter, and centrally mounts a peg 1.25mm in diameter.

Thank you very much. Wow, they're even smaller than I thought! That's good though.

Yeah, the Litko ones are a bit wider than standard apparently (listed as 3.175mm), but I've never seen one "in the flesh".
