Molding Chaos Cruisers

Postby World Bleeder on Wed Apr 01, 2009 8:23 am

Well, here is what I was talking about to Birdie yesterday. I took a new unassembled cruiser and cut it off the sprue.

I then trim off the peg hole so that the ship would lay flat.

Image

I then got something big enough for the ship to rest on during the molding process.

Image

Then I started applying the latex to create the mold. Cross your fingers that this works and look for more updates.

A good leader inspires by example but if that fails brutal violence works just as well.

Are you going to cast the ship in resin or plaster ?

Plaster actually. I haven't tried playing with resin yet but I think Kelsik might be. I do want to try working with resin though.

I hope it works out better than the base of skulls

Ah but I've learned from that first experience and Birdie turned me on to a great tutorial video on youtube so I think I'll have much better results. Actually I'll be trying out my new found knowledge this weekend on the skull bases so that will be a test bed to see if this is doable.
