    I just finished building the devastator marine.
    The template generously offered by DaiShiHUN.
    Unfortunately, I face one problem: the marine does not stand on its own due to the large backpack attached.

    Does anyone have ideas / examples of a stand that I can use to glue marine on so that it does not tumble ?

    Wow, a cool one, and a great build, if I may say;) He is in my mid- to long term to-do list, too.
    Is it too late to disassemble partially his boots (from the bottom) and put some serious weight inside? In my Wolf Guard Terminator I used lead balls (for air rifle, available in hardware stores), but anything else might be used... I made clusters from the balls using paper sticky tape, then glued the clusters inside the boot, paper on paper :) Some reinforcing of the "sole" is needed, of course.

    And this outweighs the autocannon, which is very heavy itself ;)

    Melted Lead fishing weights. Make a metal shape similar to the feet and you're a shoe in!

    Thank you for the ideas.
    I'll start looking for something heavy I can use to balance the model. Cutting open the shoe at the bottom won't be an issue since it is not visible in the finished model.

    Please, post a picture of it when you are satisfied with your results, I (we'd) love to see it. From all sides too. :)
