Out of the melting pot….

After a busy couple of days mould making I popped along to the workshop to try out two of three of the new master moulds. The castings shown are pretty much as they came out of the casting machine so are a little rough around the edges. I’m more than happy with the results though so with a little cleaning up they will be back in the vulcaniser to make production moulds.

I still need to make the moulds for the hulls of the PacFeds (which will be cast in resin rather then pewter). The first of those will be done in the next day or two so hopefully we should get pictures of completed castings up soon.

As well as the PacFeds and Indonesians I’ve also done the moulds for the tiny houses and the Belgian civilians so expect a few more previews in a day or so.

Firstly, great to hear that NZPost Parcel service is working better than the English version ๐Ÿ™‚

Secondly, while not a 15mm player, I love the PacFed castings – the detail on the railguns is superb, and they look very sharp and high-tech; Scaled up incredibly well and the deatiling works on them. Kudos!

Thirdly, the Indonesians . . . . SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!

Indonesians … lots of moulds … but we’re working at it. With the 15mm PacFeds and Soviets, 6mm Indonesians and 2mm buildings we suddenly have loads of models in the works so Phil’s being stretched to the limit with the number of moulds we need to make. Designing the masters and getting them ordered is the easy bit ๐Ÿ™‚

Understood, Tony, Phil does incredibly well given the amount of work to get things done at the speed he does.

Will be waiting patiently for these, and well worth the wait ๐Ÿ™‚
