    ...Out of curiousity, are you reinforcing the stock stock with anything?
    I am still pondering this one. But you're right, the bracket needs to be stong enough to hold the stock. When I made these several years ago the stock was heavier than the real wood stock ('cause solid resin will do that) and it put more of a strain on the light braket. It held, but it wasn't as sturdy as I would have liked. I have a few ideas on how to tackle this, and reinforcing it is one of them.

    However, anything I come up with would be an additional cost to me, and I don't have anything in the Budget for that. But what you could do, is sand down like 1/8" of the resin, and get a 1/8" thick alumimun plate and cut it out to shape and glue/screw it down and it would be a great way for added strength.

    Have you thought about using a foam core to lessen the weight and casting resin around it? I have thought about it myself with one of my projects, but haven't worked with it to see how the resin works around it yet. Has anyone else tried this?

    I have seen it done before in an R2-D2 kit that I bought several years ago. They had used Styrofoam in the center of the leg to make it lighter and to use less resin. I was wondering if it would work in a pressure pot though. So far, the only issue is that it floats and wont stay in the middle. So I get like a side or the top that isn't covered with resin and the styrofoam is sticking out.

    Quick update:

    resin did arrive tues. I have casted a few of the smaller parts, havn't tackled the larger items yet. I have the barrel in the pot as I type. Once it is ready to demold I will pull that baby out.

    hopefully I should have my first Webley test done by the end of this weekend.

    List is closed, sorry no longer adding any more to the list.

    Another quick resin update:

    The molds seem to be working so far, and I got a few parts tested. I am however disappointed with the resin itself. It seems to be fine for the thicker parts, but for the thinner ones, it is far to brittle. The littlest pressure and it snaps. So that's no good.


    So I'll use it up for the heavier thicker items, but will need to order different resin for the smaller thinner parts. I am going to get Smooth-cast 321.

    Anyone recommend another type of resin?

    just a teaser pic


    I have tried to cast two barrels already and I have concluded that I will have to make a new mold for it. I will also try to make a second mold of each part to help speed things up a bit.
