Thanks guys.

So very busy here getting ready for the big shindig, but finally the body production is coming.

Shapeshifter Resins finally creates a new Sportsman :)

Just an example of the mold.

Looking good so far.

This will do.

The master in back. Fresh baked mold ready for modeling.

Well looky here! Seems like you've got this down pat. I can finally retire! Look for a large semi dropping off many molds and associated things soon!

Any method to determine the amount of rubber to mix up to have enough without wasting too much?

After I have the master all taped/glued down into the box I'm going to use as the mold, I fill the area that will be silicone with rice.
Pour the rice back into a container & measure the volume. :angry-soapbox:

Thanks Brew, I've used the rice method a few times....I have ended up picking rice pieces/specks with tweezers and still had a bit end up in the rubber. So, I was wondering if anyone used water or some better method? Also,when I did use rice I found I had to used more volume of rubber than rice due to the rice doen't settle as much as the rubber due to air space. I guess I will keep using the rice method till I hear otherwise.
Thanks,
Tom
