........................and then that moment when you have just run a mould 30 odd times you realise you have chucked back one piece from the GPMG SF set that you need for each weapon, the Gas regulator :-(

Re: Chieftain Commanders Cupola Detail set

Hi John,

I was going to leave you guessing but I suppose I ought to do an instruction pack :-)

I only use proper butter Phil (and plenty of it) and my Cholesterol is still fine, the pots came with the casting stuff :-)

Best regards

Re: Chieftain Commanders Cupola Detail set

Hi All, In between casting this weeks orders we have been tuning the new Cold Cure moulds for the Chieftain Cupola MG mount and searchlight set. Most of the moulds ran straight off which is a testament to the skill of our metal caster and is the reason why, although we have taken on all the casting ...

Re: Chieftain build by Phil Woollard.

Hi Phil,

You may have done this but if not a tip when applying decals, gloss varnish where the decal is going, when dry apply the decal with something like Microsol then matt varnish over after. It gets rid of the raised decal edge and miss match in colours/sheen.

Cheers

Dave
