Default Casts from original plastics

OK.... I have a complete spare set of HK Lanc plastics ..... so I am now experimenting to see if I can cast Plaster in them to create plugs.

First is the Tail gunners turret ...sprayed with Silicon spray as a release agent and then plaster poured in.

A ply stick as a handle of course.

The 'radiator' is not on ... its purely its close to the sink /water supply. The bottle of course keeps the turret upright while the plaster cures.

Fingers crossed I haven't ruined my spare turret !
