      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

Backhalf help?

9 posts in this topic

Posted

I've recently gotten into casting, and must say I enjoy maknig parts nearly as much as I enjoy using them. I've pretty well mastered the simpler parts.....engines, wheels, tires, etc....but I'm having a bit of trouble. I'd like to cast a few backhalves for future projects, but absolutely can not figure out how to go about it. Trial and error is a bit too expensive-hence my question: Is there a particular way to go about making molds/casting a backhalf? Would anyone be willing to point me in the right direction? The part I want to make specifically is the tubs/rear chassis section of the AMT 66 Nova chassis. Any/all help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Im looking for this info to, one thing ive read is your basicly taking clay and filling in everything and to square up the sides and wall, so you can cast 2 or more piece mold.
