    Hi
    yes I did have a go at it some years ago,and it did work ok,use good quality casting resin the only problems I found where shrinkage,and I felt they where a little on the brittle side.

    I share these technique so you can make multiple parts of YOUR work or the work of others whose permission you have secured.

    Don't steal.

    Thanks for the info. The pictures will be a great help. I plan on using Alumilite mold and resin. Thought I would make them a little larger than needed and turn them to fit. I will give it a try and post the results.

    You're welcome, sir.

    That's what I do, Tom. The bulkheads are cast oversize and later turned to fit the specific cylinder. Lexan, PVC and Plexiglas diameter and wall thickness tolerances are very gross, so one-size bulkheads do not fit all.

    Tom,

    I see your post looking for direction as to a WTC for your 1/144 SEAWOLF. And the lack of help over there was typical, they've been boycotting my stuff for years. Likely you 'crossed the line' without even knowing the hidden rules over there; you can't even mention my name at that forum without Jeff Larue sending you a cautionary e-mail.

    No ... really!

    May I suggest you log on at the Sub-driver forum where you can get the dope on a Sub-driver unit (originally, WTC ... I invented the term way back when). Or, if you wish, I'll expand on how to make your own. If this forums Moderator's don't mind.

    David
