I'm finishing up a Super Cuc. The reproduction windscreen and hard top has been epoxied into the resin mold. Made by Brad Blohm 
 
As you can see the mold was done off a standard Cuc body and is missing the front spoiler so can anyone make me a actual size chipboard template and mail it to me?
 
The mold when finished will pull 0.020" and 0.030" PETG.
 
Thanks much,

gene

You in a hurry?    I can do it the next day or two and mail it out Monday.  I have a box for you that is stuff I been accumulating for you.  I am waiting for some gears to top it off.    If you want I can drop a template in an envelope.

Added the 2 front spoilers, brass and embedded into the master and clay to prep master for pouring the mold for vacuum.

Brad Blohm furnished his reproduction Super Cuc roof and windshield, fit up to my mold was perfect.

 Matt B made the template for the front brass spoilers, used his template and made the brass spoilers and a little adjustment everything lined up. thanks guys !

Finished mold, drilling vent holes and mold touch up to follow.

Now that's a good question. Let me see if I can make a interior mold that will fit.

First pull, the Super Clear Cuc is done, after a little polishing.

Want to trim this one and see how it looks.

 I will look into a snug fit interior.

I hope everybody realizes how lucky we are to have a talented guy like Gene willing to spend so much time making these fantastic bodies.    I sure appreciate what I've received from him.

Great stuff Gene!

 

Matt, I am curious if Gene pulled Butyrate if they would match Lancer's clarity and detail.  Won't ask because I don't want him to die!  What he's achieving with PETG is basically there as far as I'm concerned!

For every NOS Lancer I have sent him, he has made a body at least as good in PETG.   Lot of time invested in making the molds and perfecting them.   Thanks Gene.

  Gonna have to up my order!  That's one sharp looking pest!  Being that the original was a basic cuch, it should fit nicely over an original ISO chassis.

The Super Cuc missing part, the interior. The body with a quick brush paint job and a few decals for static display.

When the interior is in place and the Cuc driver installed, looks like the hard body.

The interior is a mold of the missing portion when you vacuum the body.

It fits snug and looks pretty good.

 

The interior was a request from John Stewart , "Olescratch

So here it is;

The interior does not show up well in the photos, maybe should be tan or white.

Where else do you get this kind of treatment? Thanks Gene, you made this one easy to build! All that's needed is a couple Cuch driver figures and some paint.
