Ya know this resin stuff is real interesting it takes a bit to get started but once ya get your molds made your cost go down drasticly but its getting everything right that is the problem so for a beginner i am quite intimidated but so far i have made moulds to clone suspension and tires and i have some rims that i have modifyed that the silicone is setting up on right now i also want to cast some italeri tires i love the size of them and heck i even found an old 350 turbo im trying to cast as i have 3or4 32-33 roadsters i wanna build but im just doing this for myself not to sell or any thing like that its like copying a cd we all download music off the internet and we all get it for free and we all make cd's out of it but none of us sell it we keep it for ourselves to enjoy but i am liking this so far its fun a lil agervating but fun here are a few pix of what ive made so far.
trl suspension mastered by aslowe
1st try it sucked bad
top is original bottom is one i did
alot of people dont like the idea of a round mould but i gently hold my mould together as i pour the resin and keep holding it till it wont run no more then i lay the mould down and allow it to fully curenut everyone has there own unique way of doing it that is just somthing i wanted to share if ya like it cool if ya dont o well.
