Super Barn Set

One of the really good things about casting is that once you've made the masters and the moulds you can produce all the parts needed to make a model very quickly.

A few minutes work last night, spread over the course of an hour or so, resulted in these bits which will make the bodyshell of my new Super Barn 119.

I say a few minutes work because once you've poured the resin into the mould you can go away and do something else for 20 minutes while it cures.

The flip side is that making a model of a carriage, with lots of windows like this one has, means all the time I saved by casting the pieces will be eaten up by having to remove all the flash from the apertures.

And that's the next step.
