And now Something a little bit Bigger

Postby joe gilmartin » Mon Jan 28, 2013 5:12 pm

Hey Gents .......
Looking at my new power units ( the Ruston the HaWe and
the Man-rider) I wanted a wagon just a little bit bigger
not longer like a double bogie flat ,just something a tic wider
maybe a little bit longer

Looking around I didn't find anything (surprising out in Montana in the dead of winter)except a casting kit from who knows how long ago
So here we go.........

Master Mold(well maybe apprentice)

Bob.......
I'm using Alumilite casting system their RTV and two
part mix.
I got it at Michael's
I must have the mix A+B a little off I don't weigh I just use
the measure cups
and the mix has taken longer to cure
I don't know if that means to much A or to much B

Thanks for the comments
Cheers
