Doesn't matter, I've got (a) PK III

Inspired by the ramblings of Motorised Dandruff, I've attempted to cast the PK wagon 3D print. As you can see I painted the master with the rubber before the big pour. Quite a few air bubbles so I'm not confident in the end result. We'll see.

Doesn't matter, I've got (a) PK II

The 3D print of my PK class wagon has finally arrived:

I'm going to make a mold so I can make casts of the print using Epoxy resin. To do this I need to get rid of the small enclosed space I'd created for the coupler. I'll fill these in with ye olde Tamiya Putty. Next is to attempt to make a cast.
