I can do both quite easily - first the one with the "standard" type
mounting ("male" peg), then after casting that I can modify the
master to make one with the correct angle of "female" socket to suit
the grav van. Actually, having them mounting on the pegs on the van
chassis will allow them to be modelled slightly swivelled backward
for "thrust", if you like to think of the repulsion field working
perpendicular to the plate..... (we're getting into the field of
handwavium science here, so we can just do whatever looks coolest on
