The Flying Sub comes with a stand,an exact reproduction of the Aurora stand.What a nice touch!I wanted to be able to put it on the stand or play,yes play with it!I came up with a solution that seems to be a trend in modelling recently,using magnets.I embedded a square of metal sheet in the lower hatch ring,and carved a recess for a magnet in the hatch itself.There is a plug which goes in the recess where the hatch goes,and that attaches to the stand.Now I can display it on the stand or do the diving shots in my tub!

I love the "magnet" idea. Good choice.
