It seems something has gone awry with my mold for the second go-around. The 82' Boaats came out good, but the barge casting looks like a 5-year old's balloon party has been had aboard.

If at first you don't succeed................. :idonno

Drop a couple Alka-Seltzers in the mold to relieve that gas? :stinker

Adolescent Barge Acne?! I would never have thought of that. Clearasil to the RESCUE! :tomato

The YR Barge may have had some air trapped under the casting pedestal. I re-did the handrails on the sides of the superstructure as well, because they cast like 5-inch gun barrels. :stinker

I figger each mold this size uses 110 grams of RTV Mold rubber and activator (10-1 ratio) It seemed a shame to waste any space in the new mold, so I added SS Minnow and another targeting radar antenna for the Asheville class PGM's gun turret.

Stay tuned for more Model Madness!!

Lookie!! Re-mold results!! :yipee
Sorry, Kids, SS Minnow will not be included in this US Coast Guard Point class set. The results are stunning if I do say so myself.
