Anyone want to cast a clear canopy??

Whether you're looking for reference materials, that elusive mesh or something more exotic, this is the place to ask (nicely!).

Anyone want to cast a clear canopy??

Post by Unreality » May 26th, 2016, 4:42 pm

So, I have a two-part mold I made of Kylo Ren's Shuttle's canopy. The kit part comes painted, and even after stripping the paint, it's not at all clear. I tried casting my own, but keep getting lots of air bubbles. And because I'm' not a professional resinator, I don't have a pressure pot.

So, would anyone be interested in using my mold to create some canopies? You would be welcome to keep the mold and sell the canopies you make to others, so long as I get a nice, clean version myself. I'll even throw in the original part that you can mold yourself if you wish.

The part has to be HAS TO BE listen to me HAS TO BE super duper absolutely smoooooth in order to not get a frosrty, textured copy in clear. Even a speck of dust will show up. If you got a perfect master part, send it to me, I'll do it for you.
