Peter Laing ECW Cavalryman Mold; the 64th Time is the Charm

     The Peter Laing mold  made before going on vacation was tried out today.  After a little work on the mold, the figures were the best I have managed to cast. Of course, the master was painted with a thick coat of enamel paint that I couldn't remove and the base was flocked, so there is no detail to the figure. Still, for my project they will do fine. The pictures are poor as I still haven't found my camera and used my cell phone to take the pictures.

  1. If you want to remove old paint, try boiling the figures in water with biological washing powder/liquid. You can also try adding one of the Oxy-action type cleaners. I strip the paint off old figures and diecast vehicles that way all the time
