Hanging model aeroplanes from the ceiling

Places to hang model aeroplanes: Heinkel 111 above the bookcase, in characteristic tail-down flight attitude. A literary bomber and angel of death; black cloud. Subtle placing: as if about to fly out of the room: just caught in passing.
Junkers 87 ‘Stuka’: I tried to hang this above the bog, as if it was depositing a bomb in the john, but the staples wouldn’t stay in the polystyrene ceiling tiles. So I hung it at a 45-degree angle in the hall, just above the bottom of the stairs, so that you can see its underside when reaching the bottom of the stairs.
The Heinkel casts a satisfying shadow on the wall, but it looks somewhat like a bee when you see it from the doorway.
