X-Wing miniature repair without glue

Tired of sticky super glue fingers when trying to reattach X-Wing miniatures to the receiver peg? We’ve had more than a few models snap off the receiver peg when running through Tavern Wars missions. It’s a tough galaxy out there, especially when the pilots have had a drink or three.  Super glue, of course, can work to reattach the ships but the fit can be imprecise and often they’ll just snap off again a few rounds later. Now we use removable mounting putty, that sticky stuff used to hang posters and pictures to avoid pounding nails into walls.

For small ships cut off a piece a little smaller than a dime, roll it into a ball, then flatten it onto the hull bottom. Simply stick the peg into the adhesive and adjust as needed. It also worked to reattach the Millennium Falcon to the receiver peg, using the same method but with a chunk of adhesive about the size of a nickel.
