      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

You can use an exsisting kit or scratch build your own. Just make sure that the outside of the master has no flaws (well, as close as you can) and clean. The RTV we use will pick up the smallest detail (even fingerprints.....) and transfer them to the resin copy.

I have even used heavy card-stock, regular paper, and drafting velum (great for sheet metal masters).....all of these will make flat parts in the .002" to .008" range......
