More Prints but Mould Problems
Last week was very frustrating, hence no update.
The print material has been reacting to the silicon moulds; the rubber wouldn't cure on the contact surface between it and the print, the mould was still sticky and the prints went all "rubbery". After some testing we do, however, have a solution; a thin coat of surface primer should do the trick and seal the material. The first models will have gone under rubber last night so I'll report back as soon as I hear from Rob.
This has set us back a couple of weeks, and with Salute coming up, Rob reckons we won't be shipping until mid to back end of April now. Not ideal but wanted to keep you guys fully up-to-date with developments. Sincere apologies.
On a positive note we have more prints! These just need a final clean up, which is done now and they are under rubber.
More prints soon, vehicles are due up shortly, and I'll drop a quick note as soon as I've heard from Rob on the moulds.
Thanks to all of you for your continued support and patience, we'll get there soon.
All the very best,
