Understandable, and a good plan. I am very impressed with it!

Ahh yes good point Lane. So as long as the filler is appropriate for the polyurethane it should be fine up to a pretty high percentage. You just start to have viscosity issues!
Oh yeah I can make that....

Just saw the video, that's quite a good idea. I'll be posting a link on my hobby blog to get the word out.

Cheers.

Thanks guys!

Cheers for the extra exposure Factor40, all helps!

Mango, I initially started with vertical molds and had serious viscosity issues! but switching back to horizontal molds is so much easier.. I still make mistakes! :p

Deadmeat, 65D looks amazing!! Im gonna have to get my hands on a test sample... I emailed bentley chemical a week ago.. no reply so far, might need to badger them as it looks like they could be a great source of both rubber and resin!

cut the mold for my new heavy weapons today, well chuffed with them, pics tommorow!

AH

Just spied said video myself too. Great idea, perfect way to move deeper into the market and get your name out there with a signature product. :geek:

I think that is a very important point. Every man and his dog are making bases these days, so if you have a unique signature feature is separates you from the crowd.

This is what Im hoping, I wanted to do bases to offer a complete range.. but i did some research and there are at least 20 companies already maiking bases, including a few which specialisise in only bases, hence I got thinking about how I could make soming a little bit different and a whole lot better :mrgreen:

Fleafa, I couldnt find FC10 either.. I might give them a call.. free sample is free sample..

Im not opposed to buying some 65D, just depends on pricing.. if its what forgeworld use then Im confident its worth my money!

Getting rubber and resin from one supplier would be awesome..

IM currently doing a side by side trial with some molds made from my current rubber, T28, and a similar product from ACC silicones.. currently on 14 casts, im going to run the molds over and over till they degrade.. nad I have a pile of about 500 spartan heads... luckily I sell pleanty of spartan heads!

65d is about £120 for a 7kg kit

The resin is about 70 quid for 5kg kit.

Get samples and see how you get on. Really think you will like it.

Also 65d had a pot life of about 2-3 mins. So plenty of time to vacuum and pressure. I'll get some photos tonight of resin.

Looking good Joel! Glad to hear you've perfected the vac casting - you'll have to update us with the technique you have settled on ;)

We've discussed if before and you know I'm not taking a stab at your painting, but I stand by my previous comments that you should have pictures of the unpainted bare resin parts also.
Oh yeah I can make that....
