A Clockwork Trilobite
By Dylan from South Australia
The original Town Hall was built in 1882, and is located at 175 The Parade Norwood. David used Ultrasil and Easycast Resin to construct the model. David, an Adelaide Moulding and Casting Supplies customer, spent over 300 hours creating a replica of the Norwood Town Hall. David was commissioned from the Norwood, Payneham and St Peters council through the South Australian Miniature Enthusiasts Club where he is a member. Below are some photo's of David's Model.

Adrian (Bugsy) Won 2nd place in the Truck Category, using an IWATA HP.CS Airbrush and mixing in pearlex (iridescent) pigments purchased from AMCS.
BMW M3 Master
One of our customers wanted to create a master of his BMW M3 R/C car body that he purchased from the local model shop, so he could vacuum form his own car bodies over the master.
Using Easycast quick setting polyurethane resin he made a slush cast in the body around 5mm thick. In 30 minutes the resin was set and the master de-moulded.
He then began vacuum forming his own car bodies over the top of his master using polycarbonate sheeting.
A picture of the master and various vaccuum formed bodies are pictured below. This customer is also using the new TC-891 polyurethane resin to cast various suspension parts for his car. The resin is ideal for casting small parts where high strength is needed and where weight is an issue.
The master was made from Easycast.

Sam has used an Iwata custom micron CM.C PLUS and art spectrum concentrated artists inks. The CM.C PLUS has a Micro Air Control (MAC) Valve that enables infinite control of the airflow at the head of the airbrush, which is different to just regulating the air pressure at the compressor, it will change the way you airbrush!
Laker 13 Kayak
By Bob Hutton
Bob, an Adelaide Moulding and Casting Suplies customer built this Laker 13 Kayak from a Jem Watercraft plan using R180 epoxy resin, H180 slow hardener and 84 gsm fibreglass cloth to encapsulate the plywood. The epoxy completely seals the plywood and the glass cloth protects the ply from abrasion, puncture and weathering. The seams are glued and filled using epoxy thickened with wood flour. The hollow shaft paddle is also glued and sealed with R180/H180 with the blades reinforced by the 84gsm cloth.
Bob says "I initially looked at the R180/H180 system because it is significantly cheaper than the highly publicised brands but had concerns about suitability for this project. AMC arranged to have my questions answered by the manufacturer's technical people and I did tests with a trial quantity that showed good joint strength and clarity. The choice is now fully justified by the success of the project – the glass/epoxy armour is brilliantly clear and there were no problems with a
mine blush. I chose the 84g cloth to keep the weight of the kayak down and found that not only does it wet out easily but it helped keep the weight below 35lb, so I now have a kayak I can lift and carry with one hand."
