I now have all the bits I need to produce my first resin DZ.
The moulds for the floor and ends have cured, the masters extracted and the first copies have been cast.
Laid out before you now is, effectively, a home grown kit for a WHR DZ wagon...
The type of resin I'm using means it's a bit of a race against time to get the stuff poured into the mould before it begins to go off and becomes too stiff to flow into all the places you want it to go.
You have about 90 seconds, according to the instructions. So while you want to work as swiftly as you can you also want to take care to do it as neatly as you can, to ensure it flows into all the right places and is as smooth and even on top as you can get it. (It doesn't necessarily level out perfectly because it sets so fast.)
I think I must be getting the knack a bit, though, because I managed to cast the floor, the ends and these wee brake bits from a single mix of resin.
Now the real test will be to see how well it goes together. Come back here in a day or two and I hope I'll have something to show you.
