	That's exactly what the stands look like, and I agree with
you. I haven't started getting them ready for painting (I'm a slacker,

are some Irregular spaceships that don't have any place to stick a
stand. A few of them are flat-bottomed and large enough for a
nail-stand, but a few are too small and one's just too, well, irregular
for that.
