10188 Death Star stand?
Posted 27 August 2010 - 02:37 PM
As my knowledge of pieces are limited, perhaps you guys can help.
I am getting the Death Star set. I plan to use my UCS DS to shell the exterior. I would like to make use of the UCS stand but want to be able to rotate the DS. Is there any robust spinning parts that could support the weight of the DS?

I also have a similar piece to this, only the base is different. However it is just a turntable with no clicky. I'm not sure but if you try to turn the DS with the clicky turntable it might be too stiff and it may risk damage and breakage. I'm not sure of the piece id though, I'll be searching for it.
EDIT: This is what I meant LINK.

I was thinking of using technic pieces. The base of the DS has a square hole. I was thinking of sandwiching technic bricks to surround the hole. then i can attach more technic inside.

You could also use the flat 2X2 spinny thing as well. However you should surround it by flat smoothe surface plates to help with support.

Can you elaborate? I took a look at the online instructions but could not figure out how it turns.
