Dio? Will you be showing the 190 torpedoing a 1/72 ship? That would be something!
I'll get me coat now!
Just ignore us! We do get a bit carried away from time to time!
Mind you, I was thinking of suggesting you get your 190 dodging a Spit, and a 109 trying to protect it from the Spit while it tries to torpedo .......
All this nonsense to one side! I look forward to seeing your 190 progress....
Very, very fine fishing line, works a treat!
Re: suspending aircraft in the air.
I'd use clear acrylic rod mounted on to the board. Glue a plastic block to the inside of the fuselage then drill a hole through both the fuselage and part way into the block ready to take the rod.
This way your 190 won't sway around with every whisper of a breeze.
Here's a sketch - hope you can read my writing.

I'm sure some of the other guys may have other ideas though
The only method I have successfully employed, which is virtually impossible to detect and allows endless positioning possibilities, is the use of very fine catgut type fishing line to suspend the aircraft. This method has the advantage of not having to drill holes in the airframe, but uses loops on either wing and tail.
Unless of course, our friends on here know another way....Answers on a postcard please, quoting your pin no, and password to me.
I like the idea of forced perspective. Suddenly I have an idea what t do with that little bitsy 1/700 battleship I have cluttering up my shelf.
Trust me, I'm a Doctor!!
A quick call to a mate (who frequents the relevant forum, I think he's an editor or something fancy) and here's a link to a lot of pictures and an explanation from the man himself. Very impressive.
