Minor question, would this kit fit on a M43 airsoft model?
He could use lost foam metal casting. The overhead there would be about 150$ for equipment, and every time you cast you'd lose a little bit of aggregate, the oven and crucible would wear, and it'd be ~1/6th a tank of propane..SPARTAN II said:Honestly fellas, I seriously doubt he'll be making these conversion kits out of metal. Although it is possible to do so through the molding/casting process (I've seen it done before in rare cases), it's a very expensive endeavour. If anything, he'll most likely either make them out of resin or fiberglass. A lot easier than metal, and more affordable...
How did you know I read everything.... Details aren't nailed out yet, but I will be at the tourney...Sigma-LS said:This thing is pretty much ready for molding (again since I screwed it up the first time) but I won't be buying the materials until I finish my clay helm.
It will be cast resin because of simplicity and the price range I'm going for. I want it to be available to a good range of budgets.
As far as availability goes, you might want to ask for one as a christmas present. They won't be ready much before then. (Though I might have a couple for that dallas tourney Spase if we want to give them out as prizes for a raffle or something.)
