I decided it was time to grow a set of gonads, took the plunge and bought myself a vulcanising can. I can see myself going through a few sets of low temperature silicone moulds and whilst I'm quite happy to outsource this in the short term, I'd rather be attempting my own in the longer term. To give an idea, to have 1 x 9" mould made is £90.00 plus vat and then the cost of white metal on top of that. The average loco kit will require 3 or 4 and on the odd occasion..... more in order to produce all the required castings. Not cheap. So ...... maybe by ths end of the week, I should have it delivered.it wont see action u til I come back from Cyprus then I'll give it a bash. I mean ...... what could possibly go wrong.
