Moldmaking Tutorial: 2 Piece Scale Model Car Mold
In this tutorial we mold a diecast car body using Gel-25. PlatSil Gel-25 cures to an A25 in about 1 hour so it is great for fast 2 piece molds. Gel-25 is very low viscosity so it is ideal for quick molds and does not require degassing for most applications. The final model car body was cast in EZ Flo 60 casting resin with yellow PolyColor added. There are several PlatSil Silicones that would work well for this process: 73-20 (for really small fast molds), 73-25 (For larger 2 piece molds that require a longer pour time), or 73-15 (for small 2 piece molds or cut block molds). All of those options may be used without vacuum degassing. If you are going to be pressure casting, vacuum degassing is a must! Under pressure micro bubbles can expand or contract causing surface imperfections in the final resin cast. The mold in this video required about 5 lbs of PlatSil Gel-25. You can find Gel-25 in 2lb kits or larger on our webstore: 2500 release agent is here: ategoryId=-1 2ease is here: EasyFlo 60 is here: m

Model Car By Gerald Wingrove
Gerald Wingrove devoted seventeen years of his life to the business of light engineering as a center (centre) lathe turner. Seeing no future in that vocation, he decided to turn his hobby as a model engineer into his full-time job and went to work as a freelance designer and patternmaker for film, TV, jewelry and toy companies. He did work for companies like Meccano (Dinky Toys), Mettoy Playcraft (Corgi Toys) and others. In 1967 he received a commission from Lord Montagu of Bealieu to build a series of fine detailed scale models for the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu in the south of England. Other similar work followed as collectors became aware of the quality of his work, and he soon found himself being invited to visit some of the best private car collections in Europe and the USA to document and reproduce in miniature some of these elegant works of "rolling sculpture".
