    You can try what I did to solve that problem. Gloss coat your master before you make your mold. A glossy surface tends to let the rubber flow over the part better then if it was a flat or a semi gloss finish on the part. With the gloss coated part there is less surface tension for the rubber to try to flow around giving you a better finished part in the end. When you pour your resin into the mold it tends to flow into all the areas of the mold that you normally get air bubbles in. And also using a mold release will help a lot. Molds release helps to get the resin to flow better into the mold as well. I hope this helps I have been casting parts now for the better part of 10 years.

    The hood hinges are from the AMT 66 nova kit. With the kit spring removed & replaced with N scale train coupler springs. You can get them from a well stocked hobby shop that deals in N scale trains. You can get the springs in a coupler spare parts pack. The part # for the kit is 1029 & it's from Micro Trians. It has other pieces in the package like small screws & at least a dozen springs in the package & some other stuff you could use for other things. I used photo etched washers from model car garage for the pivot points. If anyone want to know more just ask. & thanks for looking.

    1969 Camaro
    This is a revell 69 Camaro with the hood from the 69 SS snap kit & parts from the 69 Nova. The 3 different sets of wheels are held on with magnets. The magnets are attached to the front & rear ends with CA. & behind each wheel there is a washer to hold them in place. I painted this kit with Tamiya TS14 black rite out of the can! Then I polished it with Meguiars # 7 show car glaze. The trim is all BMF. The photo etch is all model car garage. I holowed out the back side of the grill with a dremel tool.

    Hello from Massachusetts
    Hello to you all. I am new to the forum( but I have been lurking here for some time). I have been building models for 27 years now. But I never seem to finish much of what I start!! So I hope to finish more this year then I have in the last 3 years. The only thing I have completed over the last 3 years has been a 1969 Camaro from revell that I will try & post some pictures of soon. That's all for now.
