    i put tons of staples all over the plywood for the carbinite to stick to . also don't mix to much at once . it sets quick .

    the yellow is wood glue i added to help save on the carbinite . i took a puddy knife and flatted out the big pour . went back and poured over it again to smooth it out a little .

    The rubber is flex 80 from alumilite. The stock stuff is a little different than what they mix for me. Begins set at 5 mins, open time is 7-9. After that its putty for a min, then its time to throw it away.

    Project looks great. How much does it weigh?

    Super job m8.

    Finished up my star wars room. Got the HIC hung on the wall. Thought it looked good enough to share. The video is the whole room. My entire star wars collection. Little to much for the small room.
