Mike,,,thanks for the observtions,,,,,,I aquired a doll house lighting kit today with the foil wire and all and maybe will try to get something in the base for that.....will get into that again in a bit
Going back to the Bentlel,,,,I have been toying with the cincept of making ribber tires and more accurate wires for it. In this vain I made up a new 3 piece rim assembly and am going to case the rims and hubs then make up a better wire....Also I will make up a nice tire and case that.....I am wondering it I couls use the RTV for them,,,,if anyone casts their own rubber tires I would appreciate any ideas on that.
here is the frame for the mold and the RTV poured in place....I made a seperate mold for the hub since is is deeper than the rims...a conservation move so I dont use so much RTV material.
I will now set that aside to set up and do a few pulls and make up a few trial wires with the new materials.......Then post them side by side so you can see where I am going with this process.
I decided to cast some parts since I have a few larger projects coming up and will need a few dozen wires and I can cast them instead of making them 1 by 1...................also If I cast the rims and tires they will be more consistent.
