Default Re: War Of The Worlds Tripod (price added)

The tripod was originally going to be one piece hollow cast resin but I'm going to get a couple of the bodies cast in hard vinyl, it will just need joining around the middle but we're modellers.I've done one for myself and it comes out ok once filled and seamed.
Just a question to anyone who expressed interest in a kit, would that pose a problem for anyone or not ? Please can you let me know as I'm trying to get these sorted.

As you are hopefully going to be building two for me Neo, won't worry me at all if that's ok for you.
Really looking forward to getting a pair built up mate!

I'm having hell of a job getting these legs cast to be honest people.
Anyone know a good caster in the uk who's up for a challenge.

What sort of issues are you having with the leg castings?
Perhaps I can help sort it out.

Also, are you selling to this side of the pond ? ( New York )
If so...price for US customers ????


Did I mention...Very nice work sir !!!

Thanks nutz,
The legs a reinforced with steel rod so I've got to cast this into the mold and I keep getting air bubbles in the finished leg even with air holes in the mold .
I might be being a bit too fussy but I dont want customers moan about my kit needing too much work done to it.
And yes I would sell over the pond.

Default Re: War Of The Worlds Tripod (price added)

This is really doing my head in trying to get this model kitted, more than a few times I've come close to not bothering with it but I know a few people are looking forward to getting one so I will press on.
So I've now cut the leg mold and I'm going to do it in two halves with the reinforcement in the lower thinner part as trying to cast it in one piece was more than a little problematic.
I'll let you know how I get on. Got some bodies ready (they just need legs)

Hi Neo hows the Tripod coming on? Are you still having problems with the legs? I really hope you can get a few of these kits together as i am really looking forward to getting my hands on one. I'm quite happy to pay for an unmade kit if you havn't got time to make one up...cheers, Tel..

Just a thought...

If the legs are proving to be the fly in the ointment, could three lengths of rod/tube be put together and used for each leg, together with resin castings for the top, bottom and middle "collars?"

There is probably a perfectly good reason why this would not work but I thought I would make the suggestion...
