Default pod sprung tabs

i have a warp models lab pod i intend to put on my product enterprise die cast eagle, is there an easy way to add the springs and tabs like the passenger pod has? if no, can you get away with just placing the pod underneath (while on display)
cheers, phil

You could try replicating the mechanism on the PE Pods but I'd imagine it's quite fiddly.

If it's a static display, I'd just either wedge it in with some sheet plastic or even glue it.

Anyone else have ideas?....

making some sort of wedge is looking the best option, although i have a bunch of springs i bought to restore a dinky thunderbird 2 that i might try to use like the original pod. anyone got any details of "wedging" btw

When, as it quite often the case, the monogram model clip broke, I would layer little pieces of scotch tape on the pod walls till snug. Then you can still remove it without too much work.
