First (successful) attempt at resin casting (Neubaufahrzeug part)

Hi folks,

at our last club meeting, the local hobby shop manager held a bargain sale of old kits from the store, and I came home with (amongst other things) the Modelkrak 1/72 resin kit of the Neubaufahrzeug. A quite weird, yet cool, vehicle of special interest to me as a Norwegian, since those few vehicles to see some action, where employed here during the 1940 invasion.

Anyway, upon inspecting the parts, I found that the kit was one secondary turret short. Rather than contacting Modelkrak for replacements, I opted for trying to cast my own. And I'd say my results where quite satisfactory. Bear in mind that these parts are quite small, about the area of a fingernail.

The copy is to the left.

Nice Job Arild!
The turret came out pretty good. The copy has some small bubbles but at that scale nobody will notice. One thing you could do is cover the mold with a fine layer of talcum powder. This will reduce the chances of getting air bubbles.

Keep on casting!!
