Thanks for the tip about using a spring loaded pen for doing your part QC. The cast sides, ends and steps look crisp and well made. How do you open-up and clean-up the car window openings? What do you use for paints now that the fine scale Testors “Floquil” line of paints has been discontinued?
Thank you for your progress report.
Hi Paul. I cut the flashing out with a knife, cuts easily. I get the paint wherever I can find it, mainly on Ebay. I am using a hard plastic from Bity mold supplies and it seems to be very strong and as strong as the epoxy that I was using. This plastic flows better and fewer bubbles, so I really like it. Thanks, Bob.
Well Paul, it wasn't as easy as I thought to cut the flashing out of the windows.
Here is something that I had to go through to get the correct thickness of the window frames because of the plastic setting up as I was installing the second part of the mold. The stuff was setting so fast that it made the window frames too thick so I had to machine them down on the mill. This probably wouldn't have happened if I had used the epoxy that I am used to, but I am trying new things. Here are some pictures of the setup on the mill, cutting the inside of the frames for consistent thichness. Bob.
