Perfect for those Victorian Sci-Fi games, click below to see my dinosaurs mounted with howdahs. Click on the images for better pictures:
The howdah platforms are 1/8" modelling plywood. I wood glued craft sticks underneath, cutting the profile of the dinos back into them to help them to sit. To hold them in place, I screwed small "eye" screws undearneath, and ran a rubber band under the dino.
Hattip to the Colonial Angle for the sandbag tip.
