So another day on this idea.
Ive poured the first section of the saucer silicone, second pour tomorrow.

Invisible yogurt moulding !
Ive de-moulded the master patterns, and poured the first load of bits to check for air entrapment and where to concentrate my working as i pour the resin. This lot is pretty good to be honest, only some small bubbles here and there

So first pull done and checked over, notes taken.
Second pour done with more time taken in the areas i spotted from the first lot.

These castings look very nice!,..if the dish turns out this good i will be a happy camper using them on the Slave 1
I hope it comes out like these as well. Im very happy with the finish so far. Fingers crossed :)

Ive done more today. Poured the second half of the dish mould. Now the waiting.

I cleaned up the castings from the second pour. It took no time at all removing the flashing with my belt sander. On the smaller parts i used 200 grit on a flat surface. All the parts (except for the dish) are just pour cast, so clean up is very easy using a flat plane and some sandpaper.

I decided to cut a couple of holes in the baseplate and add some greeblies under the rest. Its not something i will include in the kit, but you can obviously do the same if you wish.

Then started adding the parts for a final size check.

So more done today.
I poured the first hit of the dish and it came out spot on.

The black flecks are a bit of dirt which got into the mould. No bubbles. all cool
Flashing is all on the rear and wafer thin, super easy to remove.
SAM_4315.JPG


I prepainted all the parts with their first layer of colour and placed them back on the model for a quick visual check.

Many more weathering, pin washes and airbrushing to go before its done. I use this as a sketch to follow as the layers build up.
Hope you like it.

HAHA, cheers voodocaster.

More done.
Im just working out the next set of small greeblies.
Ive worked it so the only kit you will need extra is this
SAM_4344.JPG

Theres just no way i can cast the guns as well as an injection moulded kit, so i think this is the best way to get some nice detail in there.
There are a few parts from this kit which work and i will go through them once the kit is ready to go.

So i have arranged the parts on the base and stuck everything down apart from the engines (im planning to do something extra to mine) and im happy to say it went well without issue, all parts fit nicely. You can see the guns in grey which come from the kit. The lower two stubbs of the guns will be cast in the kit, but you will need the 4 guns (one each side and two in the dish) from the kit to complete it.
SAM_4335.JPG


The dish is the first pull painted up with the guns in place. There are some other small greeblies to go into the small voids in the centre
So heres what it looks like now.
Incidentally, the resin i use needs no preparation for painting. No washing or degreasing etc. I use no release agent in my moulds so it makes prep super simple. Just thought you should know :)
More soon.

Heres where we are now.
this will be the completed kit once the final small greeblies are cast and fitted for a check.

The engines will not come with the internals as shown here, They will have the textured coin detail seen in the first few posts.
I have also formed a panel which sits underneath the lozenge engine with a raised key area to allow you to place silver tape or paint the bottom of the engine.
another pass with the airbrush and some subtle sanding, and here i have my "almost "completed lower surface.
final kit parts and greeblies will appear here tonight for your delectation.

I will be completing the paint job on the lower surface once i have the upper done to this stage, in order i can get the final weathering to match across the whole thing.

Hope you guy's like it. Im very happy with it so far.

Almost ready to make a few kits once i worked out the resin costs and time etc.
Thanks for sticking with this thread everyone.
