I'm planning on running a game of Squadron Strike for Mayday this year, so I've made some 3D flight stands for spacecraft. Squadron Strike is a board game that allows you to play spaceship combat in 3D with ships from pretty much any universe you want. There's a ship builder system in the game that lets you design ships with various characteristics. To convert this to 3D, I'm using a hex map from Hotz and some 3D flight stands.
I'm using a cheap telescoping mirror as the bulk of the stand. When the mirror and the clip are removed, the rod itself is a great telescoping tube with a rotatable, bendable top.
After putting some washers on the bottom and a rare earth magnet on top, the mirror is now a telescoping stand. I made several of these.
Because of the magnets on top, I can put any spaceship miniatures with matching magnets on the bottom onto these stands. Here, you can see the Orion frigate I painted a long time ago in various positions - tilted down 30 degrees, completely vertical, and upside down.
I'm also planning on making some smaller stands for missile and fighter markers. I'll start with these smaller dollar-store magnetic pickup tools. Coming soon...
