I've had this mold for quite a while , I got it cheap off Ebay but never managed to get a proper casting from it . It is from a German firm called SCAD and is of a Franco-Prussian Bavarian infantryman in 40mm and semi flat . I thought I might add a unit to my Balkans War Imaginations collection to represent the little know Bavarian intervention in that conflict .
So today being very wet outdoors I settled down to cut some vents into the mold to help the air escape and aid the molten metal flow around it . I'm waiting till tomorrow and the absence of my wife to test it out - not sure she fully approves of me using the cooker hob and sparing her the bad language if it doesn't work .
Here's the mold (upper right) with the other two ones I bought, I've cast the other ones without any problems . I will report back on the progress .
