Casting a soldier using ComposiMold and Polyurethane


A customer asked about using ComposiMold to cast plastic soldiers. I thought I would show an examples of this.

Making a Toy Soldier Using a Two Part Poured Block Mold.























This plastic soldier has been a toy for several generations. The people who designed it did an amazing job. It is a great example of how to design a part for good casting. I expected it to be a large casting using a lot of resin, but when I molded it, it used very little. The body of the soldier turns out to be extremely thin to use less resin. Also, all the components are facing down so that it would be easy to fill with the resin without air pockets forming.
