Any cheaper ways to make molds?

If you have any local art supply stores, you can try having them order it for you, but it will still be more cost effective to order it online.
You may want to dig deep and buy the gallon size for $90.00 or so.

That was the starter set I had bought in Pittsburg, but like I said, I can't get up there right now because it would cost me more in diesel fuel than it's worth! I think I bought mine at Hobbytown, though. The best I have close to me is Michael's, and they have resin, but the only mold material I've found there is a brush on type and I don't know how that would do, because some of the things I'd like to cast is tractor trailer engines (most notable is the one in the Revell Peterbilt) and parts like that for future builds, and need something cheap but durable. My last resort is Micromark! Thanks Casey.
HS3 can be found at Hobby Lobby, but it looks like your nearest HL is 70 miles away. The silicone rubber kits I purchaed (trial size) were around $30.00 each
