I thought it was about time I put an update on my blog regarding my second Airfix Paratrooper and a sneak peak behind the scenes on how they are made from a two piece plaster mould.  Also my favorite image of the week, an optical illusion looking into the mould, isn’t it funny how our brains compensates and creates an image that is convex when it is actually concave. 🙂

The last image was a surprise to me, I managed to get the first cast to be a success, goes to show that the extra time looking for under cuts pays dividends in the end.
