So I started a new project. I built a 8ft x 34in x 15in high stand for rebuilding the USS Flagg. I built it high enough to slide my comic boxes under, and at some point I'll sand, paint, finish it. I've started doing a thorough cleaning of the Flagg which has been in my attic for about 4 years now. I'm using a standard generic all purpose cleaner and paper towels / q-tips to get the grime off. Also as I've been finding any broken parts (tabs, clips etc) I've been re-molding them using Loctite plastic epoxy. Has anyone else used this stuff? it is awesome.. i little goopy to work with, but the more it sets the easier it is to mold. I've been casting the broken pieces in regular clay then using the plastic epoxy to form new ones, sanding them down and then attaching them using more of the epoxy. I used this stuff to create a whole new arm for my son's Spidey and Friends Iceman figure. It dries almost clear and just looks like iceman got into some of the "yellow" snow. Anyway, more pics to come...

Looks great, can't wait to see the finished result. Any chance you got some Green Lantern issues in those boxes?
Be careful what you wish for - it might come true, for the face of death wears the mask of the King of Mercy.

Thanks for the measurements. I'm about to start a very similar project and didn't want to put the Flagg together to get a good size and then take it apart again to start building the display. Looking forward to seeing the finished product.

Looks nice. Maybe paint it blue so it'll look like the Flagg is on water.
