So I have all 3 models, scotch light and plastruct ball or hemispher.


One little tidbit I found was using the ornament I bought from hobby lobby. I'm making 2. 1 for me and 1 for the boy. Actually, he's making his own. We are doing these together.

I bought 2 ornaments so I have the pieces for the outer skins for the accents.

Getting parts together to make my dump molds.

I had to order the Airflix tank. Needed it for the other wheels. Should be in beginning of next week and then I will begin casting. I will be laying out my hemispheres and drilling for the chrome truck rims whilst I wait.

Any chance you're planning to make extra casts of the parts? I've been looking for a cheaper way to pick up these pieces without needing to buy an entire pre-made kit.

I can share pieces for someone to make casts for the group. Just need a willing party. More than willing to help out if I can.

My Airflex tank kit arrived. Luckily this was the cheapest from all the models. I'm ready to go and I just finished building my dump molds. I am making a 2 part mold for the rims. My kit only came with 4 chrome rims that are correct and the rest of the rims form the kit are different.

Now, I did find an alternative for the muffler end cap that only comes with the Bandai Panther. It's a pulley on the fan belt set up from the Kenworth model. I matched it up with the 1 piece muffler .

Also , my ornament from hobby lobby will work perfectly. Notice I matched up the rim with the part I need to cut away.

What silicone are you using ?
Actually, I had an issue with the stuff I bought at hobby lobby. I went to the model section here and asked for help. I just ordered smooth on products. The mold makers swear by this so I will listen.

This is my first attempt using the hobby lobby stuff, so hide your laughter.

After my mishap using a another product, I used smooth on for this round.

Finished a new mold, poured and waiting with crossed fingers.

Ok, so I have a question. I see on the tutorial, you need to draw the 6 inch circle and use 45° angles for the lines. There is a circle drawn on the top however, no details on the measurements. Is this a 45 degree mark from the center and then finished with a compass or a number that was simply left out of the instructions?
