Hello all
Every now and then the good people at Scalecast list some moulds on Ebay to auction amongst all their buy it nows. These are brand new moulds, usually with a half price starting offer. So if you are lucky you may be the only bidder as I was with these.

Nice. Any 7mm scale moulds. I don't use Ebay. I am just curious.

Hello all
This is up for auction at the moment might be worth looking at if you want a start set. Only 99p at present, one bid.

Maybe. :)

I have several plans where I am considering the possibility of exploring making several things. I could do with a massive clear out of my 00 gauge and a few other items to make more room for new projects.

If anyone is interested I have found that I have a selection of them which I definitely have no use for whatsoever! Some of the moulds have been used (though only a few times and are in very good condition, the mouldings produced will come with it!) and some are as new, one even in it's wrapper! I have the following:

Moulds:

S1 (x2), S2, S3.
B1, B2, B3, B6.
R1, R2

I also have a box of Linkalite Moulding Compound (about 2/3 full) which seems to be OK.

1986 edition Linka Manual.

Colour brochure.


If anyone is interested please PM me with an offer. NOTE: I am on 12 week lockdown (for my wife) so won't be able to post it until after that though I'll be happy to hold onto to it until then!

Hello all
Just a quickie the start of making a mould for the Perimeter Wall of Weldon Goods Yard.

I have found that by using the Linka flat slab formers I can make a mould that needs no further support and is the same thickness as the originals.

What's the medium you are using there Dublo? It doesn't quite look like plaster in the picture.

Hi End2
Your right its not plaster I am making the mould out of liquid Latex. The master that I am using is modified Linka tiles assembled into a length of four. So that I can cast a longer unit pre shaped and to make the actual assembly easier for myself.
