Recommended Posts

Progress update:

I think that's it for the Master Mold! Now to let it cure and fiberglass mother mold tomorrow!

First of all let me start by saying I really love the bucket + armor you made / gathered, looks amazing!

May I also bother you with a little question (I'm working on a bucket also, and really love what you did with the casting): what silicone did you use to create that inner mould (Is it silicone?), is it brushed on, or poured on?

 

Thx in advance,

Now that I've finished my armor, finally getting around to upgrading my helmet's kill stripes. Made a mold of the 3D printed pieces and cast them in Smooth-Cast 305. Then cut out the old stripes!

Glued in the new ones and sand to smooth! I think it looks pretty good!

Looks good bud. Will these updated kill stripes be made available? And how did you go about cutting and gluing in the new stripes?

Most likely I will. Nominal fee plus shipping. I will post detailed pics once I finish my bucket upgrade.

Now that I've upgraded my bucket decided to try my hand at something new! Matrix mold! I followed Sorenzo Prop's tutorial on Youtube. Hopefully this will resolve several of the mold imperfections I've struggled with.

More enhancements in the works.

 

I made a minor tweak to the beak to pull it in just under the visor. It's very subtle, but feel it's more screen accurate. I also am trying a different mold approach as I've struggled with getting good beaks.

I have also spent some time fine sanding the visor buck. Trying to get a smoother surface to improve visibility yet retain the bubble visor look.

Looking forward to getting new parts out of these molds and see how they turn out!
