    Makes for much better pulls no doubt. Big Props to Bluerealm for helping me get the new mold taken care of for the Assault Rifle. Finally the two halves fit together in a glorious harmony of awesomeness.

    As you can imagine, I'll be creating my armory!

    Are there classes you can take on working with resin? I've got to learn how to do this cool stuff.

    Well, I learned at the "Trial and Error" academy in my garage.

    but, here are a few links:
    http://www.danperezstudios.com/works...ng_casting.htm

    http://www.hirstarts.com/moldmake/moldmaking.html

    also, Micromark makes a real nice 1:1 RTV that is *very* forgiving. Try that to start with.

    I would start with small stuff. I have been doing it for a few years and I wouldn't even attempt something this big.

    That rifle is awesome! Most people don't have any idea how hard that is to do and for that piece to come out so clean is amazing.

    Nice work!

    Looks awesome!

    Man, the original designers sure didn't leave much room for Chief's trigger finger.

    I would not call them awesome. That was when I was trying to cast the two halves separately. It wasn't until Bluerealm made this new mold that I'm going to try and make a few. I've learned much since those videos were made.

    Looks like cabosil is going to be required to keep that thing at a tolerable weight. Nice mold!

    Might just throw one in there anyways for making you sit and wait so long...

    Yup, I'm using a filler to help with weight... but it's also hollow so it's very managable.

    i was looking at micromarks 10:1 rtv, the 1:1 is good but never seems to last enough.
