    Scott Terrey down in Australia and I have collaborated on a few 1/96 scale projects. Most recent project is a kit of the Russian NOVEMBER class attack submarine. Scott's doing the hull and sail. I'm doing the propellers, bow planes, masts and items needed to adapt the parts to r/c use.

    David,
    I am sorry I said wax when I meant clay. The green clay you use, where do you get that?
    Peace,
    Tom

    I use most of my clay as master backing while making GRP or rubber tools. As the Platinum cured silicon tool making rubber I use has an aversion to any sulfur bearing material I avoid earthen clay and use the oil based 'children's clay', generically described as, 'plasticine'.

    If only the thing could cook! Over thirty-years I've gone through three of them. And I run these machines HARD!

    Simple, solid, easy to drive and NO PLASTIC!
