I managed to finish building the second Earthshaker Cannon for my Rebel Grots. Here are a couple of pics to show how the two Basilisks are coming along:
I know they aren’t great pics but I’ve been rearranging my basement (one of the reasons for a low progress week) and can’t get at my photo setup right now.
I bought some casting resin and I’ve been playing with that this weekend. I cut a set of four tank tracks from plasticard and make a few wax molds of those. The wax molds are brittle but take very little time to make so they’re great for quickly making a set of short term molds. From these I’ve cast a handful of tracks. My plan is to clean these up and add some detail to them, then I will make a latex mold of the detailed tracks and mass produce them for my tanks. I’ll also make a couple of molds with several tracks connected so I don’t have to piece every set together from single tracks. It’s a bit of work to set up but in the end I expect it will be less effort than making all of the tracks by hand. I can also take the time to make a small set of tracks with much better detail than if I tried to do them all one at a time.
