Models In Production
Good News Everyone!
We've needed some time to perfect the mold making process, but things are getting into full swing. Due to the size of the molds, we had to invest in a heavy duty vacuum machine. Several of our test pours were resulting in imperfections and bubbling. It wasn't an issue during our preliminary tests, but we were working with single models and a lot less rubber. We've developed a method of creating one large rubber mold for each of the sets for maximum efficiency. This means a lot of rubber, which means a lot of mixing, and therefore a lot of bubbles. The vacuum machine has fixed the problem and we're much happier with the results. We've also had to rework some of the models slightly for better extraction from the rubber molds.
As orders are fulfilled you'll be sent an email from Backerkit, so keep an eye out for that. Remember, we are fulfilling in the order that people pledged on the project. So if you were in it early you'll be among the first to receive your rewards.
Thank you very much for backing our project and we look forward to receiving lots of pictures of the models in action!
