    Default Re: Cobra commander

    Id get one if you do make it.

    hey a tip for getting a perfect silver in casting get something called black resin and a powder in silver.

    What you will want to do is use a platinum mold "that's what it's called" or mold max

    onyx it's a black resin(sounds odd but this is how most items are cast silver)http://www.smooth-on.com/index.php?cPath=1120_1325
    what you do is make a mold and then coat a thin layer of this in silver bullet http://www.smooth-on.com/Cast-Magic%...tml?catdepth=1
    then pour the onyx resin/plastic this creates a silver. then i recommend a clear acrylic spray and maybe chrome spray. this won't rub off and it's uv resistant so it won't fade

    another powder that can be used is this http://www.smooth-on.com/index.php?cPath=1211
    I believe this may be added to the onyx and then poured together

    the only other thing you could do is just cast it in black resin then spray paint it gloss black and use this with an air brush
    AlcladŽ II chrome

    Thanks guys. Will update is casting is ok.

    Groovy, thanks for the link. I have been using Alclad for a long time. I use it mainly for my scale modelling and this is my mainstay for recreating metal surface in scale. The one I use for this build it Alclad polished aluminium with a gloss black base coat.

    your welcome i just wanted to give you enough options to choose from to make a cool product. I actually like yours more than the SS release. by casting the mask in black saves you some of the trouble.

    I would have just used the stock one. At least it's chromed and displays nicely.

    But you do get an E for effort.

    Updates:

    First batch of casting done. Casting blocks need to be removed then check for flaws. If all is ok I will start priming it.
