Re-basing slotta based figures

By Antti Heiskanen

As I know a lot of people dislike slotta bases,  here is a quick & easy method of basing figures without using the plastic slotta bases

Although the figure below is based on a coin this method will work just as well for figures multi-based on mdf bases




Use side cutters to make the tab less tall





Use small pieces of  plastic card leftovers from other projects

Glue these pieces on to the coins/mdf bases to make a suitably wide slot for the tab

 Glue the
pieces off centre to get a more balanced look when the
figure is mounted on it's new base





Glue the figure into place

 The figure won't stand any higher than a
figure with an integral base glued on a coin

Now base like you would any
non-slotta figure
