I recently popped this thing together and painted it after having it knocking around for ages.  Rather than using the little connector pieces that come with the Sector scenery I decided to try and use magnets in the ends.

It worked pretty well and so I took a few photos of it in different orientations...

I have some more close ups and higher resolution photos on the Blog

 

 

I hope you guys think I did a decent job. I have another one to put together and one of my friends recently started collecting Ad Mech and has bought a whole bunch of Sector Mechanicus kits... and he is also doing the magnets too so our kits all fit together!

That's a really nice idea. I wish I'd done that with my terrain now.

Nothing to stop you popping magnets into the ones you have and then doing it with new ones? I wasn't sure if the little clips were mentioning to be glued In place or left loose so you could rearrange your scenery, but I thought they would wear and eventually not hold them anymore.

Huh... this is a great idea, but the original idea combined with your last comment has me thinking that I want to try adding magnets to the clips themselves to get the best of both worlds.
