1/32 Tempest moulds – work in progress

If you had a kind of feeling that nothing is happening with our 1/32 Tempest project,
you could not be further from the truth. The Tempest was having a bath for several months
and was enjoying it quietly and peacefully. Gentle electric current was tickling the model master parts as well while they were receiving layers of copper in the electroplating solution. The moulds do not look quite tempting you would say from the photos, but the truth is that we are excessively happy with the outcome, everything went to our expectations.
All what is needed for now is to clean away the traces of electroplating fluinds from the moulds and pour so-called “white metal” to the moulds back sides. So, quite a lot to do yet. And the milling machines are busy with tooling the small parts moulds.
