There was a thread a while back where I asked about magnetizing flying bases here
, because I was building a magnetic carrying case for my figures. Now after a long long time I got all the materials, magnets and some time to actually finish the project and... well... I finally made it. The magnetic carrying case deluxe complete with internal lighting and space for books, tape measure and dice is DONE!
I went with a soft self adhesive LED strip (2m long, warm white colour) that had a separate power plug. This is absolutely essential as that means I can glue the part attached to the actual LED in place and have the power supply separate. That way I don't have to run the cable out of the open door which is so elegant.
For my vehicles I didn't use magnetic sheet, it was not strong enough for my tastes. Instead I glued 2-3 4x2mm neodymium magnets flat below the bases of my skimmers and flyers. Works out alright. You can put them upside down and shake them without breaking off. The only thing I'm still worried about is whether the balljoints (default ones by GW) will hold. Maybe I have to do some experiments and magnetize them as well. Problem is there's a lot of momentum because of the size of the vehicles and there only being space for a single flat magnet. Time will tell I guess.
As for the pictures: they're a bit blurry, but you get the idea. And yes, those close ups of the trays are actually upside down.
I can do a tutorial if you like.
Here are some pics:
And finally all my other stuff... which still fits nicely inside that case all at once. 6 floors total.
Hope you like it. Cheers!
