So I built a chaplin with lots of magnetized parts: Image
Now how do I prime and base coat them without haveing paint pool up on whatever flat surface Im using to hold the parts. Well since the arms have pieces of tin on them I decieded to use more magnets and do this:

Its simple. A piece of plywood, wood dowel, 1 wood screw and a bunch of nails. I put a small magnet on the end of each nail. I did not glue it as IF I had a magnet part to put up the sides may not match up. I was able to prime and base coat a bunch of parts and not have paint pool.

Great idea. That also works for entire models if you put a magnet under their base. Helps to make sure you get a nice clean under coat on the entire model.
