Wow! Warhead and Hammered just way too cool!
Thank you so much for the detailed instuctions. A year or so ago I was going to give this a try and bought a trial size batch of Smooth On, Feather Lite Part A & B and their Universal Release. Have you tried the feather lite stuff? I need to get their silicone
After seeing your instructions (thank you again) I may give this a shot.
The only thing is now I'm into scratch building Micro planes and need to make pilots for those at 1:24 -1:30 scale details I would think are going to be hard to get but I'll give it a shot. I'll have to try and find some Legos (use to have tons but my boys are now young men in their 20's. Oldest just turned 22yesterday with the 2/2 Marines somewhere near or in Libya.
The Micro pilot I used in my Micro P-47 build was designed by Toni and made by Shapeways 3D cutting. I'd love to be able to make my own in this scale but again I'm just not sure of the level of details. I've also vac formed my own Sculpty molded pilots but in the smaller sizes the details are hard to get vac forming even though I may have a good mold.
