Good luck with what's looking to be a fun little project !
Yes, I believe I'll try that. Thanks

Slight setback. I tried to apply the masking using an iron (per the manufacturers instructions) but it didn't turn out as well as I hoped. I've ordered a laminator which is highly recommended for this stuff. I'll try again when it arrives

The master for R2s barrel is done. It's taller than it needs to be, so are the legs, but they can be cut down accordingly. Work on the dome is on-going. The obligatory Coke shot is in the first post

Project hit a snag, I was over 1/2 way done with the dome and decided I could do better so I stripped all the detail off and am starting again.

Thanks, it didn't look bad but it was not up to my standards.

As a change of pace I poured the mold of the Barrel yesterday. I'll pour a test part tonight after I get off work.
