This weekend I sealed the rocket master and tank topper with ModPodge and added the fins. These should be ready for silicone now.

Will you sell parts separately as well? I'm in the market for some tank toppers and thrusters.

So cool! I want to redo my rocket and tank toppers at some point. I didn't have a lathe at the time so I did funky stuff with a drill press and sand paper. Now that I have a lathe, this would go so much better! :)

I have to say, the wood lathe is nice. I also have access to a huge Metal lathe at the shop where the Vac Former sits.  :D

My Dad and I made a little progress on the JP mold. (I think he has been bitten by the bug! :-))

Well, in the interest of posting my failures as well as my successes...

The initial pull of the "mostly finished" Jetpack molds went as well as a rushed pull ever will.  :D Which is not all that well, but I am going to try and assemble the pulls we managed. I see it as an opportunity to make a list of revisions to be made to the molds. This will get better...




I need to assemble better risers for the mold and make some tweaks to the pull-through holes. Back to the workbench.  :D
