Interesting to hear that the mould has worn out for the new kit. Is that a record? Just out of interest, how often do you have to re-make the moulds?
Yes, I'm pretty sure it is a record, for me anyway
. The mould life does vary a bit, but on average I probably get about 25 usable pieces from a mould, sometimes as many as 30. With a new kit like this, the first couple of pours are used to determine where there are any problem areas and quite often consigned to the bin. I'm pleased to say that wasn't the case for this one and they were used to test build to make sure it fitted together properly.
Thanks for your appreciation, not what I was looking for
. I took the photo as I was pretty pleased with the output and just thought it would lay to rest the myth that I sit here waiting to reply
. Ironically, most of what is seen here is for Avalon Line, so not much Gn15, though there are a few kits for Back2Bay6 and Brettzler in Germany.
