Making some Silicone Moulds to reproduce Class 45 noses

Something else i've been meaning to get around to for several years is resin moulds. Finally I had a stab at replicating a peak nose. This Bachmann nose is quite rare so I thought it would be a good first attempt. firstly I did the mould the wrong way around so the air bubble rose to the top ( as you'd expect) but settled under the nose leaving a heavily pock marked final mould. Hardly noticeable on the silicone mould, but very prominent on the resin cast.

Posted Image Various shots of making the mould to create the nose. First attempt and not too bad, sent them over to friend who is a Peak Freak but to my knowledge they haven't been used! In fact the donor body (which was returned after being cleaned up a bit) was from him in the first place.
