oddly enough, it happened as i was placing it back on the "spindle" of the model. suddenly, the dish snapped into place but the spike popped out. i was like "oh that's interesting" so i knew immediately what had happened and could instantly see it was more curious than problematic.Chuck_P.R. said:Was there an AWE, CRAP!!! moment there between when it popped out and when you realized it was made to pop out and hadn't broken off?
