Hi Richard, no im not going for a uniform thickness, some areas need more some less, ive tried it before with jewellers wax sheets, and also using a already molded part with mold release on it... results were disastrous... as can be seen in my original thread, i had to discard both molds, these were my first attempts from last year.... at this scale (1/72) and the thin 025 foam... sanding is the most reliable way i found...
Im sure there are ways of doing it without sanding i just havent found it... hopefully the more people get into this.. the more these techiques can be refined.
Now on a bigger model it will be the way to go as one will be using thicker foams.. and sanding a large plug would be very time consuming.
Theres just so much that can be done here, the possibilities seem almost endless!
Thanks for starting this thread Harpye!
