What mould material (investment) are you going to use Tom?
When I start making moulds, it will be low temperature silicone moulds Ron. Initially though, i will be using NMRS to nake my moulds for me. I am down in Northampton in sbout four weeks time as a guest of NMRS models as Graham has very kindly offered to give me a demo on mould making and spin casting with the offer of letting me try it.
He uses a couple of different methods and machines but one positive is that one of his spin casting machines is the Tiranti C300 which is what I have just purchased.
My intention is that once I get up and running with Highlander Models and become more proficient in the use of the equipment and mould making, I will supplement the sale of the Highlander range with offering a mould / casting service to others. Ideally I'd like to have a modest product range of my own and the offer of services to others to a level where my QS days are over. ( 5 year plan ).
Wow - Yorkie did you pick up on that we've got five years at least of privilaged tasks heading our way, I can feel the honour being bestowed - bit like been hit with a frozen smokie
Got to see the beasies in the flesh today on a site visit, and they are impressive, now Toto has just got to industrialise his methods & processes to be able to produce consistant good results, which I'm sure he will do, otherwise the stick he will receive from us will be life changing
Indeed and a plate of Smokies served with Candyfloss and Mulled wine too... Toto will have tourists flocking to his shed from all over the globe to partake in the after party delights of Highlander Models. Don't worry Dundee I'm sure we can come up with a string of Platform 1 life changing jokes between us... oh for the privilege of a further five years of diesel kit test building.
