    Mold materials/Cast Materials/How to use/Where can be Bought

    Post  profesorul on Thu Mar 01, 2012 6:48 pm

    HI too ALL:
    -I would like ask those more experienced modelers to share with us their experience regarding the most common and usual materials for molds / molding materials for small forms.
    -for example how to cast the parts that give us headaches always:
    Planes/dive rudders/Conning tower/radar antennas and others like that;
    -and if is NOT against Forum Policy where you can buy;
    Yours

    THANK YOU for the guidance (I know the subject I was watching him),But I thought to gather as much information as possible,together for on this topic to be studied more easily.
    I think it wheel be more easy to follow some basic steps and explanations,instead to look for them all over the different forums and topics,don't You think?!.
    Is my opinion.
    What do You say?.

    Marius,


    Just keep watching, I have already showed how to make a rubber mould, a hard case hull mould, and at the moment I am making a casting mould for the dive planes, and various other small moulds.
