Yeah, when I first saw mounted Ywain, I thought that maybe he wasn't for me. But of course, now I am totally into him. Want.
Anyway. Scorpion. I am almost out of magnets, which sucks, because I wanted to buy some before my new Sereqet arrived. But I never did. So now I only have one strong magnet and seven weak magnets left.
I was going to just order new magnets and wait... but I cannot wait. Impossible. So I will make do with what I have.
That means one strong magnet and one weak magnet in Zahra, and two weak magnets in Sereqet. It's not super ideal. but it seems to work. I feel like multiple magnets are probably the way to go with the mounts. One magnet is not enough it feels like to me, because the riding model becomes wobbly. You need two contact points. Three is probably unnecessary.
You did just one central magnet though on your scorpion, right Dave? I guess it works if the magnets are strong enough.
Picture shows location of the two magnets in the scorpion. If I had planned better, I would have placed them further apart on either side of the thorax. I am stupid. But I think it will work.
Oh yeah, now I remember why I did it this way. Its because I wanted a central magnet in Zahra, so she can sit on the same wooden vault as Hroka. Smart.
