Jeff Lebouthillier and Gord Ireland demonstrate different casting and molding techniques
At our May club meeting (2015) we were very fortunate to have Jeff LeBouthillier and Gord Ireland demonstrate how various molds and casting techniques are used to make some of the cool models and aftermarket parts we love so much.
Jeff gave a great Power Point presentation while using some of his own molds and models to show different results of different techniques.
Gord brought in a bunch of materials and molds to demonstrate casting with Alumilite Resin. We all got a chance to cast some pieces out of resin using the molds he had made with RTV Silicone. Both demonstrations were important because they show just how simple the process is and how great the results can be. I think we all learned something new and maybe saw how casting parts could improve our own model building skill set.
Thanks again to Jeff and Gord; we look forward to more great workshops from both of these experienced modellers!
