Full Version: Making Them Fly
F F U R G > Tips & Tricks > Custom Ships/Vehicles Tips & Tricks
Everyone's seen someone's collection where they have a starship hanging from their roof on a wire (like this). My question is- how do they do that? What kind of wire do they use?
You could use some strong clear fishing line attached to the ceiling using eyelet screws. Just make sure the screws are long enough and attached to actual wood rather than just dry wall.
In my diorama/display HERE, I use coffee cup hooks and fishing line rated for 100 lbs. I used needle-nose pliers to pull any knots tight so they don't slip apart or untie. If the ceiling were painted in my home, you wouldn't see the hooks very well.

HERE's also pictures from my apartment 4 years ago with the same method.
