Just wondering if I were to make my own model parts etc. What kind of resin should I try and get hold of? Has anyone got any links or anything?

Cheers

honestly, i dont know much about resin but as far as i was lead to believe there isnt much difference between the different kinds out there (please dont smite me if im wrong!!!!)

but i was lead to believe its all about the molding, the little pour area and vent....

I don't know what's available in the UK, but I've had good luck with Alumilite. Ultimately, though, any two-part silicone-based resin works more or less the same-- the technique in casting has to do with how you pour the moulds than the actual stuff you're using. You have to go slow with it, and make sure you don't have any air bubbles; otherwise, the whole casting will be ruined.
