Arado 196 A-3

Recommended Posts

Thanks for all of your comments guy`s . Well Apreciated :)

 

So far the canopies I have casted seem to be O.K. Next Time A better way is to make a two part mold ! I have a hard time getting the pieces out of the mold . I wont get to many copies this way .So far I have 4 fronts and 0 backs :( . I also found out that the very thin resin parts are very heat sensative ! even with just holding it in your hands! I am hoping that when the resin fully cures in a week I wont have that problem .

 

I made decals

of the Unit badges and I am in the process of putting the decals on the Ar196 hatches tonite .Thanks to Florin13 for his Info on how he printed his decals I gave it a try .

 

Photos will follow soon .

 

Thanks again for everyones comments ,

Hi guy`s ,

 

Still working on the canopies . The clear resin is not as easy to work with ! I made a two piece mold which seems to work much better I am using an RTV rubber sold in Perl`s Art supply that is much easier to use and is cheaper by volume . Smooth-On OOMOO30 Tin-Cure Silicone Rubber www.smooth-on.com .

I am hoping to have parts done by this week .I am using a pressure pot to cure the small bubble problem !

Hi Shawn

 

Thanks for your comment .

 

 

The pressure pot did the trick I finally got a few sets of canopies without the tiny bubbles in them .It`s been about 15y ears since I did any mold making and pouring resin .I`m kind of rusty at doing that sort of stuff! It`s going to be next week till I do anything with the canopies the resin has to cure for a few days .
