    Hey everyone

    Like many of you I broke my flight stand pegs into the rear ends of my figures, and I've been working to create a cheap and easy fix anyone can do.

    First you have to remove the broken peg from the figure. I used a small drill bit and drilled into the center of the peg and kept at it until I was able to remove it.

    I watched this tutorial about using a pinning drill. I didn't buy one after seeing the price and used my own hand drill. The first figure I used it on I slipped and dinged up so be carful.



    The other figures I was able to remove the pegs with an exacto knife and pulled it out from an angle.

    Once that's out time to drill a 3mm hole into the stand arm. Then just insert one of these pegs I bought these off eBay cheap.

    It's not a perfect fix by any means but it works well enough. Anyhow, I hope this helps anyone that has had this problem.
