    A Smooth-On submerged something-or-other.

    Remember we are after all "grown-ups" who live in our parents basements and like Star Wars.

    Muad'Dib: I like your use of the words "grown-ups" I refer myself as one of these versions as well, except luckily I no longer live in my parents basement.

    ..oh yea, and Smooth-On was a good guess. Although, the comedic answers brighten my day.

    I am going to open the box this afternoon. Then I will remove it's original guts, put it back together, and pour in some resin to show my work. Man am I excited!

    Any last guesses...or more comic relief?

    First pull from the mold is complete. What do you think?

    I am pleased with my first one. I figured I would possibly need to make a few air vents, and I was correct. I did get an air pocket in the trigger and part of the trigger guard, I will fix the mold to prevent this on pull two. Pouring one first helped me to find these areas so I know exactly where to put the vents and not make any that are unnecessary.

    This is a project of mine I have thought about for a while. My main intention is to make a more durable version, something I could hand a child and not be as worried about. I don't even like letting my friends play around with my Mojo Sidearm. I love it and would hate to damage it. And as for my real Pulce 40, that is my favorite item in my collection. So I decided to try a one piece cast. I used a softer resin. When it is completely dry it is firm, but it does have the slightest flex to it. I am also now considering doing another mold with the barrel separate. Then for the barrel use an aluminum resin to give it a metal look.

    Any thoughts are appreciated.

    That's definitely NOT a condom.

    But seriously, very nice I'd love one of these one day. Is that straight fiberglass resin?

    It is smooth cast 45D semi rigid resin plastic. I have enough material to do maybe 5 more. I am going to the shop tomorrow and look at some more materials. I just finished adding some air vents to the mold so my next pull should be even better. I am gonna try to do it tonight. Quite a time consuming project this has become.

    Re: What's in the box? Pulce 40

    Well I just pulled the second cast, and the air vents worked perfectly. It has a couple small bubbles, but nothing that can't easily be filled in. I am very pleased. The entire trigger filled up without bubbles and the trigger guard area turned out good as well.

    I was upset when I saw the line between the frame and the back tube part of the gun just above the trigger area. In the pic this thin white line looks jagged. but it is the detail of the thin gap between the two parts giving the illusion that it is a tube inside a frame, like it is two parts. The actual line is very clean, so no clean up needed. Once you paint that part you wont see the interior of that space and this thin gap will make it easier to mask up when it is painted.
    That's all for tonight. More work tomorrow...
