Lego flight stands (from the archives!)

Another one from the digital archives: flight stands using round Lego bricks.

Quite some years ago (around 2009? 2010?) we played a series of games with the Check Your Six rules. Tracking altitude in air wargames is always a bit of hassle. Most of us prefer something visual (changing the height of the model), but that's not always easy to achieve. The result is too often an ugly contraption obscuring the model itself.

Frank came up with this idea. If I remember correctly, he custom-ordered round transparent Lego bricks, mounted a magnet on the top one such that the model could bank, and presto! Inserting additional bricks for altitude changes is trivial. Let the pictures speak for themselves ...
