Didn't someone (Truescale?) at one time offer a back pour of the Classic Astro body?

The mold will be done in about 2 weeks, so hang in there.

 

Still have to make the male silicone body copy, then the female mold then the resin mold to pull bodies from.

This all takes time.

Dang!   So clear and smooth.   I don't think bodies were any better than this back in the 60's.

 

I can appreciate how much time you spend making stuff PERFECT.

Gene, I wish I could say I taught you how to do that but it would be the biggest lie I ever told. 

 

Fantastic!
