Well, here we are again, back from Space, diving right into WW2 scenery stuff :)
It's been a while ago when I had the chance to get my hands on some moulds of a company called Linka (World).
One of my forum mates over at www.boforum.de sold some for around 6€ per piece and I got two of them.
Wait a minute. Whats Linka?
Linka World (website here: http://linkaworld.com/index.htm) is a company from the US, making moulds of modular wall- and roofsections for 20mm gaming or modelmaking. I've seen moulds on ebay whose owner wrote that the product would be 30 years old. Well that'd be quite a history for a company making stuff like that :)
Over here(Germany), the moulds are pretty expensive with about 15€ pp., but I was lucky enough to find someone selling a bunch of 7 moulds for 50€! What an opportunity! But thats not enough. I suggested a price of 45€ (always trying, when possible), and he told me, if I'd pay the 50, he'd pack several hundrets of ready-cast parts in the packet. Allriiiight!
After an odyssey with a german parcel service which uses the name of the greek messenger of the gods (failed to give the parcel to one of my numerous neighbours 2 times...) the cast parts were mostly crapped...
Well this is what I got (along with the 2 moulds I already owned):
And this is the result of my first cast with 2x80 grams of stewalin (a very hard ceramic casting mass):
But thats not too bad: It's a perfect task while you're waiting between two World of Tanks matches ;)
Here's what I first made:
So this is the beginning of what we call a "Tante Emma-Laden" (Aunt Emmy's Store):
I guess I might be back in blogging-bussiness now :) At least I hope so!
Last but not least: A warm welcome to my new followers. Damn, I can't even tell how "new" you are :D
