so... as I mentioned in a previous update, I planned on making new storm shields for my terminators... cos the GW ones smoke pole

This is my 1st scratch build project...

anyways, last night I cranked out this one... I took the visual cues from the SM tank range... no prizes for guessing

so this was sketch that I cooked up just to get my head around the project

IPB Image

Size comparisons between the stock one and mine
IPB Image
IPB Image

by its self from a slightly different angle... i wanted the shield to sort of wrap around
IPB Image

and finally, how it looks on the mini
the stock one
IPB Image

my one
IPB Image

Anyways, I plan on casting it up today, so I'll let you all know how that goes...

comments welcome peeps

Love the storm shield design looks nice and solid!
I love how it has a similar style to land raider armour too. Very neat armata_PDT_34.gif

Very nice. Will the sarge have a little extra something to his shield?

peeps

started making the mould for SS today...

heres a progress report... again, the is my 1st attempt at anything like this


So here are the goodies for this phase of the process. The two part RTV rubber compounds. I choose to get my gear from Barnes... for the simple fact that they deliver. I have my digital scales to ensure that it get the ratios correct, the special clay (you cant use plasticine cos it messes with the rubber), the mould box and base, I just use some PVC plumbers pipe for this, rather the build a box. and finally some rod for the pouring channel and channels for the resin to run off to
IPB Image

I used a hot glue gun to attach the base to the pipe
IPB Image

I then filled half the base up with the clay, smoothed it out and added the shield in. being careful not to get any gaps
IPB Image
IPB Image
IPB Image
IPB Image

I then roughed out the channels
IPB Image

and then added them in
IPB Image

next I added some RTV rubber to a cup and weighed it (after zeroing out the cup weight of 4g)
IPB Image
IPB Image

and did the same for the catalyst
IPB Image
IPB Image

poured the two together and mixed throughly
IPB Image

before pouring the RTV rubber into the mould, I gave it a quick hit with this... its a silicone based release agent. I opted not to put any keying points onto the mould cos of its size and also cos of the many channels used
IPB Image

I then poured the rubber into the corner of the mould and let it flow over the piece to be cast
IPB Image

and now I wait
IPB Image

should be interesting if nothing else... lol

comments welcome as usual peeps

Good stuff mate, though most people wait til they have a successful cast before posting a tut wink.gif

Whats the difference between the blue and the pink casting rubbers, if any?

Interested to see how they cast up for you.

nah... im not everybody... i post my success as well as my failures... lets hope this goes into the success box...

there is no diff (i believe) apart from the manufacture... however im not a subject matter expert on this stuff (its my 1st attempt) perhaps a more learned reader of my humble diary can shed some light on the topic?

Did you put a release agent inbetween the 2 pours?

Burning the midnight oil too huh mate? Yeah I did. Got a bit too much overspray on the wooden floor boards and it made them super slippery. Almost fell over and broke my neck...

I can't wait til tomorrow to see how it turns out

I work a night job mate, I'm always up past a reasonable hour.

Well I'm glad that didn't happen, then I'd never get to see how they turned out.

How long is the cure time for the Blue rubber then? The pink stuff goes off in 20-25 mins. And you can cast straight after!

GREAT SUCCESS!

I'll let the pics do the talking...

IPB Image


IPB Image
It came out very smoothly... nice cast... a few minor blemishes but nothing to get too excited about

IPB Image
Time for a cast... heres the straight dope

IPB Image
I wanted to prepare the mould better, so I made a few changes around where the pour hole is

IPB Image
again, using the scales to ensure that everything is accurate

IPB Image

IPB Image
with the second part of the mix added

IPB Image
gave the mould a quick hit with the release agent

IPB Image
put the mould together and joined it up with some tape (seemed like a good idea at the time

did the pour and....

a little bit of flash... lolz... but not too bad at all for my 1st attempt... the detail is largely accurately reproduced with a few minor flaws. nothing that can not be overcome with some patience and a little more experience. now I just need to concentrate on perfecting the pouring process into the mould. I'll keep you updated

comments, suggestions welcome
