Thread: UCS Star Destroyer Fragility Question

    UCS Star Destroyer Fragility Question

    I bought my UCS SD over a year ago and now finally have some space to build it and display it. I can't remember if it was a thread or a website where I read that the bottom of the SD is not stable or doesn't hold up well and someone made a list of a few extra pieces I could buy that would make it more stable/solid. I can't seem to find out where I read that. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance!

    I can't but I know a mod exists. I tried to find the info you are looking for but couldn't. I'd be very interested in reading about a fix too.

    It isn't the most stable piece in the world, but the base was never my issue. Mine holds up fine as built.

    Yup, it's more about keeping the bottom plates held on.

    Yeah, noticed that issue when I try and move it around.

    Man, I have searched and searched, and can't find info on that mod.

    From what I remember, it involved placing technic pins in the base stand, at the right place such that they would support the lower wings.

    Wasn't there something about extra magnets too? I'd say that is my bigger problem is keeping those magnets from coming apart if I do have to move it. Luckily it is in a stable postition and won't have to be moved for some time.

    From what I remember reading on some website a long time ago, it had to do with buying extra pieces to be added to the frame/infrastructure to make it more stable.

    I'm still searching for that site, but no luck.
