    PATTERN MAKING - DARREN

    Darren has made one half of a mould for the Willys Jeepster.

    He's now using Vaseline as a barrier, this is to stop the other half of the mould sticking/bonding to this half when it's poured.

    Otherwise we'd have a lovely master encased in a solid block of rubber.

     

    So this week:

    Darren's Willys' covered in Vaseline

    :o)

    PATTERN MAKING - Mr. P

    Pinker is reworking the BRK 152 into the BRK 162.

    He just cut the roof off!!!!!

    A bit extreme, but if you want a soft top version then it has to be done.

    SMALL PARTS CASTING - NICK

    These are BRK 161 baseplates still attached to their spru.

    FETTLING - RICH

    Richy has filled any imperfections on these BC 010's and will now begin sanding them.

    It may look like a lot of filler but remember that our models are hand-cast in a very traditional way. They aren't machined and laser-smoothed like other mass produced models.

    It takes longer but we think you'll agree that it's worth it !!!!!!

    Right !?!
