    First test castings out of the mold tonight. I still need to try the flexible urethane buttons. I don't see any problems with them, but you never know...

    Oh... real on on the left. Replica on the right.

    As you can see they are good and hollow. On these test castings the mold spread apart in the middle so the grill has to be dremeled out on the inside a tad *about 1/16" or less. I can fix that on later castings.

    The replica switch - inside and outside.

    On and off the replica PAL.

    On the plus side, I set up the mold so I can do a hollow cast or a solid cast without too much effort. Heros and stunts baby... Of course, I have the feeling I'm going to need to make at least another two or three molds :)

    More info as I get further along this weekend. I have NO idea as to pricing at the moment. I still need to test the flexible buttons. I'm concerened that they may be too thin for the flexible urethane to properly set. If those can't be done, they will EVENTUALLY be offered with solid resin ones or a solid flexible urethane button.

    As always - more as this develops.

    Stay shiny...

    Awesome casting job. Looks almost identical to the real one.

    Gorgeous, Gary. It's hard to tell the original from the copy. I wasn't really interested in one of these before, but I am now.

    Looks fantastic. Looking forward to finding out how the flexible urethane does for the button. Can't wait to get my hands on one.

    Any advances on this? I'd hate to see it slip off the bottom.

    That explains the oddball pm I got yesterday. Truth be told, I think that mold is long since dead and gone.
